Term Information [More information on myelin maintenance]

Accession
GO:0043217
Name
myelin maintenance
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process of preserving the structure and function of mature myelin. This includes maintaining the compact structure of myelin necessary for its electrical insulating characteristics as well as the structure of non-compact regions such as Schmidt-Lantermann clefts and paranodal loops. This does not include processes responsible for maintaining the nodes of Ranvier, which are not part of the myelin sheath. Source: GOC:dgh
