In oligodendrocytes some mRNAs are transported from the perikaryon to the distal processes and localized in the myelin compartment where they are translated. This review describes the cis-acting signals and trans-acting factors that mediate intracellular trafficking of myelin basic protein (MBP) RNA, the prototype for such mRNAs in myelinating glia.
