The gene product was initially identified as a 190-kD protein associated with the contactin-PTPRZ1 complex. The 1384-amino acid protein also designated p190 or CASPR for 'contactin-associated protein' includes an extracellular domain with several putative protein-protein interaction domains a putative transmembrane domain and a 74-amino acid cytoplasmic domain. Northern blot analysis showed that the gene is transcribed predominantly in brain as a transcript of 6.2 kb with weak expression in several other tissues tested. The architecture of its extracellular domain is similar to that of neurexins and this protein may be the signaling subunit of contactin enabling recruitment and activation of intracellular signaling pathways in neurons.
