Background MAP2, a 280-kD protein, is highly concentrated in neuronal somata and dendrites. Microtubule-associated protein 2(MAP2)is a neurosteroid receptor. MAP2 gene contains 19 exons, and located in segment 2q34-q35. The transgenic MAP2c was present in dendrites but not in axons but transgenic MAP2c messenger RNA was limited to cell bodies.
