PRNP

More reference expression data

PRNP (PRioN Protein (Creutzfeld-Jakob disease, Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker syndrome, fatal familial insomnia)) is a gene that codes for a protein called the prion protein (PrP), which is expressed in the brain and several other tissues.

The human PRNP gene is located on the short (p) arm of chromosome 20 between the end (terminus) of the arm and position 12, from base pair 4,615,068 to base pair 4,630,233.

PRNP has also recently been designated CD230 (cluster of differentiation 230).
