PMP22(redirected from growth arrest-specific 3)
PMP22A gene on chromosome 17p12 that encodes an integral membrane protein which is a major component of myelin in the peripheral nervous system, and appears to be involved in growth regulation and myelinisation of the peripheral nervous system.
PMP22 mutations are linked to Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Type IA, Dejerine-Sottas syndrome and hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies.
