Gene: Cspg4 (chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cspg4
Name: chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4
Description: Predicted to have collagen binding activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of MAPK activity; glial cell migration; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase signaling pathway. Localizes to the cell projection and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; skeleton; and vascular system. Orthologous to human CSPG4 (chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 4); INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
