Show Summary Details


The Collapsin Response Mediator Protein-1 (CRMP-1) is a brain specific protein considered to be involved in the collapsin-induced growth cone collapse during neural development. CRMP-1 belongs to the Unc-33 gene family. Here we report the genomic structure and the localization of the human CRMP-1 gene to chromosome 4p16.1. Sequence analysis revealed that the human CRMP-1 gene consists of 14 exons. We have also established sequencing assays for all its coding exons. This should permit the rapid screening for mutations to assess CRMP-1 role in genetic disorders mapped in the 4p16.1 region.
