Recombinant Human Neuritin 1 (NRN1)
Candidate Plasticity Gene 15 (CPG15)
Neuritin (NRN1) is a GPI-anchored neurotrophic factor, which is expressed in response to induction of neuronal activity by GDNF, BDNF, NT3 and other neural stimulators. It promotes neurite outgrowth and especially branching of neuritic processes in primary hippocampal and cortical cells. NRN1 also promotes angiogenesis. During early brain development, NRN1 inhibits apoptosis of cortical progenitors by preventing activation of caspase 3. Recombinant human neuritin is a covalently disulfide-linked homodimer, consisting of two 9.7 kDa polypeptide monomers, each containing 88 amino acid residues.
