Growth Associated Protein 43 also known as Gap43 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GAP43 gene.
Gap43 has been termed a 'growth' or 'plasticity' protein because it is expressed at high levels in neuronal growth cones during development, during axonal regeneration and is phosphorylated after long-term potentiation (LTP) and after learning. This protein is considered a crucial component of the axon and presynaptic terminal, its null mutation leading to death within days after birth due to axon pathfinding defects.
Storage: Store at -20 °C for one year. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
