An oligodendrocyte specific transcription factor
, also referred to as BHLHB 1
and PRKCBP 2
, is a transcription factor specific for the oligodendroglial lineage.
Oligodendrocytes are glia-cells that make and maintain the myelin of the central nervous system. The nuclei of these cells are in general smaller and have a more oval shape compared to nuclei from other cell types.
