Short name: Meteorin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Meteorin is a secreted protein that regulates glial and neuronal cell differentiation during development and promotes neurogenesis. It is expressed mainly in the central and peripheral nervous system with higher expression levels in neural and glial progenitors [PMID: 15085178, PMID: 19259827]. Its gliogenic activity is mediated via the Jak-STAT3 pathway [PMID: 20460434].
