myelin associated glycoprotein


ENTREZID: 4099 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 19q13.12

OMIM: 615994 | 606568


Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a type I membrane protein and member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It is thought to be involved in the process of myelination. It is a lectin that binds to sialylated glycoconjugates and mediates certain myelin-neuron cell-cell interactions. Three alternatively spliced transcripts encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]
