Gene: Plp1 (proteolipid protein 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Plp1
Name: proteolipid protein 1
Description: Exhibits structural molecule activity. Involved in glial cell differentiation; integrin-mediated signaling pathway; and myelination. Localizes to the myelin sheath. Used to study demyelinating disease and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and hereditary spastic paraplegia 2. Orthologous to human PLP1 (proteolipid protein 1); INTERACTS WITH 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: lipophilin; myelin proteolipid protein; Plp; proteolipid protein; proteolipid protein (myelin); proteolipid protein (myelin) 1; Proteolipid protein (Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease spastic paraplegia 2 uncomplicated); Proteolipid protein (Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease, spastic paraplegia 2, uncomplicated)
