Official Full Name
membrane protein, palmitoylated 5 (MAGUK p55 subfamily member 5)
This gene encodes a member of the p55-like subfamily of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) gene;superfamily. The encoded protein participates in the polarization of differentiating cells, has been shown to regulate;myelinating Schwann cells (PMID: 20237282), and is one of the components of the Crumbs complex in the retina. Mice;which express lower levels of the orthologous protein have retinal degeneration and impaired vision (PMID: 22114289).;Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
