Short name: NXPH/NXPE

Family relationships

Description

This entry includes neurexophilin and NXPE proteins.

Neurexophilins form a family of related glycoproteins that are proteolytically processed after synthesis and bind to alpha-neurexins. The structure and characteristics of neurexophilins indicate that they function as neuropeptides that may signal via alpha-neurexins [PMID: 9570794].

NXPE is a glycoprotein with unknown function.
