i actually had the same thing (also mbp, sigma) its only 50-80?% pure (not
sure bout the xact %) also: its not (what i supposed it to be)
DEFINITION MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN (MBP) (MYELIN A1 PROTEIN).
DBSOURCE SWISS-PROT: locus MBP_RABIT, accession P25274) but i got some
reference from sigma:
Arch. Biochem. Biophys., 153, 590-598, 1972
concluding: dont worry bout the double bands, just use it
