MPZ

A gene on chromosome 1q23.3 that encodes a major structural protein of peripheral myelin, which creates an extracellular membrane face which guides the wrapping process and ultimately compacts adjacent
myelin lamellae.

Molecular pathology
MPZ mutations are linked to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1 and other polyneuropathies.

We applied this methodology in the setting studied by MPZ where c ~ 1/[100,1000] and N = 16 (the results are similar when using their assumption that N = 12).
Coupled with our previous nonexistence results from the median-price binding bids model and the overwhelmingly consistent evidence from MPZ, the conclusion is clear: the median-price auction is inefficient.
This also matches the experimental rules set forth in MPZ (2012) and allows for direct comparisons of our results to theirs.

Although the majority of people will have a mutation in one of 4 genes [PMP22, MPZ, GJB1, or MFN2 (mitofusin 2)], it can be difficult determine the genetic cause if the test results for mutations in these genes are negative.
