In this study, RNA interference technology was used to inhibit gene expression of the Proteolipid Protein (PLP) on Oligodendrocytes cell lines from Jimpy mutant mice, an animal model for Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease (PMD), which is a X-linked sever leukodystrophy. The preliminary findings demonstrate a significant correction of functional aspects in oligodendrocytes, ie effect of dibutyryladenosine 3 ,5 - cyclic monophosphate (dbcAMP) application on both Myelin Basic Protein and Carbonic Anhydrase II expression. Our results suggest a breakthrough in leukodystrophy therapy especially if coupled with effective delivery system in vivo.
