Description

General description

In the developing cortex, cortical neurons must migrate over long distances to reach the site of their final differentiation. The protein encoded by this gene is a cytoplasmic protein which appears to direct neuronal migration by regulating the organization and stability of microtubules. The encoded protein contains two doublecortin domains, which bind microtubules. In addition, the encoded protein interacts with LIS1, the regulatory gamma subunit of platelet activating factor acetyl hydrolase, and this interaction is important to proper microtubule function in the developing cortex. Mutations in this gene are a cause of X-linked lissencephaly. Multiple transcript variants encoding at least three different isoforms have been found for this gene. (provided by RefSeq) Doublecortin (DCX) is an essential gene for neurodevelopment and is expressed in neuronal progenitor cells and immature migrating neurons in the foetus. DCX is mapped to human chromosome Xq22.3-q23.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Doublecortin (DCX) encodes a protein which binds to microtubule and is involved in neuronal migration through Ca2+ signalling. Mutations in DCX causes defect in neuronal migration, that results in lissencephaly (LIS) or smooth brain in males, and in females, it leads to subcortical laminar heterotopia (SCLH).LIS/SCLH leads to mental retardation or epilepsy.
