Localizes to several cellular components, including axon; dendrite; and proximal neuron projection. Is expressed in several structures, including back skin; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system ganglion; retina; and trigeminal nerve. Orthologous to human MAP2 (microtubule associated protein 2).
