Summaries for Giant Axonal Neuropathy

About this section
Genetics Home Reference:21 Giant axonal neuropathy is an inherited condition involving dysfunction of a specific type of protein in nerve cells (neurons). The protein is essential for normal nerve function because it forms neurofilaments. Neurofilaments make up a structural framework that helps to define the shape and size of the neurons. This condition is characterized by abnormally large and dysfunctional axons, which are the specialized extensions of nerve cells that are required for the transmission of nerve impulses.

MalaCards based summary: Giant Axonal Neuropathy, also known as neuropathy, giant axonal, is related to neuroaxonal dystrophy and axonal neuropathy. An important gene associated with Giant Axonal Neuropathy is GAN (gigaxonin), and among its related pathways are Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition and Cytoplasmic microtubules. The compounds formate and malate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone marrow and bone, and related mouse phenotype muscle.

NINDS:43 Giant axonal neuropathy (GAN) is a rare inherited genetic disorder that affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems.
