Pre-myelinating oligodendrocytes (preOLs) are known to be highly vulnerable to ischemic insults. It remains unclear, however, how preOLs die. This study shows that BNIP3, a proapoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family proteins, is a mediator of hypoxia/ischemia-induced preOLs death. The BNIP3 cell death pathway may therefore be a new target for protecting oligodendrocytes from death after stroke.
