The EPM2A gene, which encodes laforin, is mutated in an autosomal recessive form of adolescent progressive myoclonus epilepsy. The protein encoded by this gene binds to laforin, but its function is not known. This gene is intronless. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008] (from
Scherer et al., Toronto, Canada. In Genomics, 2003
The EPM2AIP1 gene was identified and characterized in a screen for laforin-interacting proteins with a human brain cDNA library; the specificity of the interaction was confirmed; subcellular colocalization of laforin and EPM2AIP1 protein was demonstrated
