CD2-associated protein

In collaboration with the cell adhesion molecule, the protein encoded by the CD2AP gene initiates cytoskeletal polarization. Haploinsufficiency of this gene is associated with familial glomerulosclerosis 3.

Gene Structure

The gene CD2AP resides on chromosome 6 (Chr.6). Its size is 150.7kb. It contains 18 exons--all coding.
