Intermolecular disulfide bond in the dimerization of S-periaxin mediated by Cys88 and Cys139.

Periaxin is expressed in mammalian Schwann cells and lens fiber cells, and has been identified in a screen for cytoskeleton-associated proteins. Charcot-Marie-Tooth 4F is caused by losses or mutations of theperiaxingene. Theperiaxingene encodes two protein isoforms, namely, L-periaxin and S-periaxin.S-periaxin contains 147 amino acid residues and has an N… (More)
