Gene: Dcx (doublecortin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Dcx
Name: doublecortin
Description: Predicted to have microtubule binding activity and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in hippocampus development and neurogenesis. Localizes to cytoplasm and neuron projection. Predicted to colocalize with microtubule. Is expressed in several structures, including gut; limb segment; nervous system; retina; and urinary system. Used to study lissencephaly. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lissencephaly and subcortical band heterotopia. Orthologous to human DCX (doublecortin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: Dbct; doublecortex; doublin; lis-X; lissencephalin-X; lissencephaly, X-linked (doublecortin); neuronal migration protein doublecortin
