(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID5630
Official gene symbolPRPH
Full nameperipherin
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a cytoskeletal protein found in neurons of the peripheral nervous system. The encoded protein is a type III intermediate filament protein with homology to other cytoskeletal proteins such as desmin, and is a different protein that the peripherin found in photoreceptors. Mutations in this gene have been associated with susceptibility to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq]
