Mutations in GDAP1, the ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 gene, cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) type 4A, a severe autosomal recessive form of neuropathy associated with either demyelinating or axonal phenotypes. Here, we demonstrate that GDAP1 has far greater expression in neurons than in myelinating Schwann cells. We investigated cell localization of GDAP1 in a human neuroblastoma cell line by means of transient overexpression and co-localization with organelle markers… Expand
