GAP43 This protein is associated with nerve growth. It is a major component of the motile growth cones that form the tips of elongating axons. Plays a role in axonal and dendritic filopodia induction. Belongs to the neuromodulin family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
