Summaries for METRN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for METRN Gene

  • Meteorin regulates glial cell differentiation and promotes the formation of axonal networks during neurogenesis (Nishino et al., 2004 [PubMed 15085178]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for METRN Gene

METRN (Meteorin, Glial Cell Differentiation Regulator) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is METRNL.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for METRN Gene

  • Involved in both glial cell differentiation and axonal network formation during neurogenesis. Promotes astrocyte differentiation and transforms cerebellar astrocytes into radial glia. Also induces axonal extension in small and intermediate neurons of sensory ganglia by activating nearby satellite glia (By similarity).
