Title Demyelination: the GPR17 gene, key; the compound LY294002, possible antidote Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet FELEM Media type Web Country/Territory Spain Date 11/05/21 Description The loss of GPR17 is associated with a reduced ability of these precursors to work actively in the regeneration of lost myelin.
LY294002, a small molecular compound, would have the potential to rejuvenate aging oligodendrocyte precursor cells.

This layer isolates the nerve tracts and thus helps ensure that the electrical impulses that are passed on from one nerve cell to the next are not weakened. This makes the nerve conduction in our body effective even over long distances. URL https://www.wissenschaft.de/bildervideos/bild-der-woche/myelin-haelt-das-gehirn-fit/ Persons Arthur Butt
