Previous Symbols for GDAP1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein family, which may play a role in a signal transduction pathway during neuronal development. Mutations in this gene have been associated with various forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease and neuropathy. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms and a noncoding variant have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012]
GeneCards Summary for GDAP1 Gene
GDAP1 (Ganglioside Induced Differentiation Associated Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene.
