Gene: DSP (desmoplakin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DSP
Name: desmoplakin
Description: Exhibits protein kinase C binding activity and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including epithelial cell-cell adhesion; keratinocyte differentiation; and regulation of heart contraction. Localizes to cornified envelope and intercalated disc. Predicted to colocalize with intermediate filament. Implicated in Carvajal syndrome; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy; arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 8; and dilated cardiomyopathy. Biomarker of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 250/210 kDa paraneoplastic pemphigus antigen; DCWHKTA; desmoplakin I; desmoplakin II; DP; DPI; DPII
