Gene: CSPG4 (chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CSPG4
Name: chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4
Description: Exhibits protein kinase binding activity. Involved in intracellular signal transduction and positive regulation of peptidyl-tyrosine phosphorylation. Localizes to the nucleoplasm and plasma membrane. Implicated in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Biomarker of precursor lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
