Neuroplastin (IPR027112)

Short name: Neuroplastin

Family relationships

None.

Description

Neuroplastin is a probable homophilic and heterophilic cell adhesion molecule involved in long term potentiation at hippocampal excitatory synapses through activation of p38MAPK [PMID: 16925595]. It may also regulate neurite outgrowth by activating the FGFR1 signaling pathway [PMID: 19952283]. It may play a role in synaptic plasticity [PMID: 10759566].
