Summary of MAP2

The gene codes for a protein, microtubule associated protein 2. Similar proteins are involved in microtubule assembly, an important step in neurogenesis [R].


The Function of MAP2

The exact function of MAP2 is unknown but MAPs may stabilize the microtubules against depolymerization. They also seem to have a stiffening effect on microtubules.
