L1CAM is an axonal glycoproteinbelonging to the immunoglobulin supergene family. The ectodomain,consisting of several immunoglobulin-like domains andfibronectin-like repeats (type III), is linked via a singletransmembrane sequence to a conserved cytoplasmic domain. This celladhesion molecule plays an important role in nervous systemdevelopment, including neuronal migration and differentiation.Mutations in the gene cause three X-linked neurological syndromesknown by the acronym CRASH (corpus callosum hypoplasia,retardation, aphasia, spastic paraplegia and hydrocephalus).Alternative splicing of a neuron-specific exon is thought to befunctionally relevant.
