Family

Neuritin family (IPR026144)

Short name: Neuritin_fam

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the neuritin family of proteins, including neuritin-A and B from Xenopus laevis and neuritin-like protein from human and mouse. Neuritin has been shown to promote neurite outgrowth and arborisation in primary embryonic hippocampal and cortical cultures [PMID: 9122250]. Its expression is induced by neuronal activity and by the activity-regulated neurotrophins BDNF and NT-3 [PMID: 9122250].
