(redirected from CRMP2)

DPYSL2

A gene on chromosome 8p22-p21 that encodes a member of the collapsin response mediator protein family, which forms homo- and heterotetramers. DPYSL2 plays a role in neuronal development and polarity, as well as in axon growth and guidance, neuronal growth cone collapse and cell migration.  

Molecular pathology
DPYSL2 has been implicated in multiple neurological disorders; hyperphosphorylation of the encoded protein may play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.

This enzyme, in turn, blocked another protein called collapsin response mediator protein 2, CRMP2.
The researchers further determined that edonerpic maleate works by binding to an intracellular protein called collapsin-response-mediator-protein 2 (CRMP2), which is related to synaptic plasticity.
The researchers wondered if it might be possible to introduce a drug into the brain that would bind with CRMP2 and help it do its rewiring job better.
Second, LCM binds to collapsin response mediator protein2 (CRMP2), which enhances the drug's antiepileptic activity.
Dihydropyrimidinase-related protein 2/collapsin response mediator protein 2 (DPYL2/ CRMP2) binds to tubulin heterodimers to promote microtubule formation and stability, resulting in axonal growth and neuronal polarity [50].
Both CRMP2 and CRMP4 were highly expressed in the retinal ganglion cell layer when retinal axons were crossing the chiasm and approaching the tectum in zebrafish.
