Description

This entry represents the cerberus family of proteins. Cerberus is a cytokine that may play a role in anterior neural induction and somite formation during embryogenesis, in part through a BMP-inhibitory mechanism [PMID: 12431380]. It can regulate Nodal signalling during gastrulation as well as the formation and patterning of the primitive streak.
