Literature associating GPM6A and early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 28
Neuronal membrane glycoprotein M6-a; Involved in neuronal differentiation, including differentiation and migration of neuronal stem cells. Plays a role in neuronal plasticity and is involved in neurite and filopodia outgrowth, filopodia motility and probably synapse formation. GPM6A-induced filopodia formation involves mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and Src signaling pathways. May be involved in neuronal NGF-dependent Ca(2+) influx. May be involved in regulation of endocytosis and intracellular trafficking of G- protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs); enhances internalization and recycling of mu-type opioid receptor.
Synonyms: GPM6A, GPM6Ap, hGPM6A, D6R9D2, D6R9T7 ...
