Gene: DSCAM (DS cell adhesion molecule) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DSCAM
Name: DS cell adhesion molecule
Description: Exhibits netrin receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of axon extension involved in axon guidance and positive regulation of phosphorylation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including dendrite; growth cone; and neuronal cell body.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CHD2; CHD2-42; CHD2-52; Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule; human CHD2-52 down syndrome cell adhesion molecule
