Background of ASPM / MCPH5 antibody

The ASPM gene is the human ortholog of the Drosophila melanogaster 'abnormal spindle' gene (asp), which is essential for normal mitotic spindle function in embryonic neuroblasts (Bond et al., 2002). The mouse gene Aspm is expressed specifically in the primary sites of prenatal cerebral cortical neurogenesis.[supplied by OMIM]
