Protein Coding Gene : Plp1 proteolipid protein (myelin) 1

Primary Identifier  MGI:97623 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  X NCBI Gene Number  18823
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)

Predicted to enable identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be a structural constituent of myelin sheath. Involved in positive regulation of gene expression. Acts upstream of or within inflammatory response; long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process; and neurogenesis. Located in myelin sheath. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; musculature; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and hereditary spastic paraplegia 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and hereditary spastic paraplegia 2. Orthologous to human PLP1 (proteolipid protein 1).
PHENOTYPE: Males hemizygous for X-linked missense and partially deleted mutations typically exhibit central nervous system demyelination, loss of oligodendrocytes, tremors, convulsions, and lethality, but targeted null mutants are essentially normal and fertile. [provided by MGI curators]
