Family

Neurochondrin (IPR008709)

Short name: Neurochondrin

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family contains several eukaryotic neurochondrin proteins. Neurochondrin induces hydroxyapatite resorptive activity in bone marrow cells resistant to bafilomycin A1, an inhibitor of macrophage- and osteoclast-mediated resorption. Expression of the gene is localised to chondrocyte, osteoblast, and osteocyte in the bone and to the hippocampus and Purkinje cell layer of cerebellum in the brain [PMID: 10231559].
