GDAP1 ganglioside induced differentiation associated protein 1

Gene ID: 54332, updated on 11-Apr-2024
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: CMT4; CMT4A; CMTRIA


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]
