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.
