Peripherin/Plasticin (IPR027700)

Short name: PRPH/Plasticin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Proteins in this entry are class-III neuronal intermediate filament proteins, including peripherin from mammals and plasticin from Goldfish [PMID: 1379821]. Peripherin is present in peripheral and certain CNS neurons [PMID: 9453548, PMID: 22723690]. It is co-expressed with neurofilament proteins (NFP) and is expressed concomitantly with axonal growth during development [PMID: 8076208].
