Gene: MAG (myelin associated glycoprotein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAG
Name: myelin associated glycoprotein
Description: Predicted to have ganglioside GT1b binding activity and sialic acid binding activity. Involved in substantia nigra development. Localizes to the compact myelin and plasma membrane. Implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia 75. Biomarker of multiple sclerosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GMA; myelin-associated glycoprotein; S-MAG; sialic acid binding Ig-like lectin 4A; sialic acid-binding immunoglobulin-like lectin 4A; SIGLEC-4A; SIGLEC4A; SPG75
