Gene: CNTNAP2 (contactin associated protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CNTNAP2
Name: contactin associated protein 2
Description: Exhibits enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including forebrain development; social behavior; and vocal learning. Localizes to several cellular components, including the axolemma; early endosome; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Implicated in several diseases, including Pitt-Hopkins syndrome; autism spectrum disorder (multiple); communication disorder (multiple); cortical dysplasia-focal epilepsy syndrome; and social phobia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
