peripheral myelin protein 2

From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene localizes to myelin sheaths of the peripheral nervous system. The encoded protein can bind both the membrane layers of the sheaths and monomeric lipids, and is thought to provide stability to the sheath. A defect in this gene was shown to be a cause of dominant demyelinating CMT neuropathy. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
May play a role in lipid transport protein in Schwann cells. May bind cholesterol.
