ⓘ Contactin 2

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol GPI-anchored neuronal membrane protein that functions as a cell adhesion molecule. It may play a role in the formation of axon connections in the developing nervous system. It may also be involved in glial tumorigenesis and may provide a potential target for therapeutic intervention.
