Membrane palmitoylated protein 5 (MPP5) is a member of the p55-like subfamily of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) gene superfamily. MPP5 participates in the polarization of differentiating cells, has been shown to regulate myelinating Schwann cells (PMID: 20237282), and is one of the components of the Crumbs complex in the retina. Mice which express lower levels of the orthologous protein have retinal degeneration and impaired vision (PMID: 22114289) [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 64398)].
