Gene: Mal (myelin and lymphocyte protein, T cell differentiation protein) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mal
Name: myelin and lymphocyte protein, T cell differentiation protein
Description: Predicted to be a structural constituent of myelin sheath. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway via death domain receptors; protein insertion into plasma membrane; and protein localization to paranode region of axon. Localizes to hinge region between urothelial plaques of apical plasma membrane and plasma membrane raft. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in metachromatic leukodystrophy. Is expressed in lung; metanephros; and peripheral nervous system. Orthologous to human MAL (mal, T cell differentiation protein).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: MPV17; myelin and lymphocyte protein; myelin and lymphocyte protein, T-cell differentiation protein; T-lymphocyte maturation-associated protein; VIP17
