Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
growth associated protein 43

b-50 , pp46 , neuromodulin , gap43-b , gap43-a ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
Receptor-activated Ca2+-permeable cation channels (STRPC family)

Protein Function :
This protein is associated with nerve growth. It is a major component of the motile 'growth cones' that form the tips of elongating axons. Plays a role in axonal and dendritic filopodia induction.
