Summaries for NENF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NENF Gene

  • This gene encodes a neurotrophic factor that may play a role in neuron differentiation and development. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 12. Alternate splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]

GeneCards Summary for NENF Gene

NENF (Neudesin Neurotrophic Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NENF include spinal cord injury. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and heme binding. An important paralog of this gene is CYB5D2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NENF Gene

  • Acts as a neurotrophic factor in postnatal mature neurons enhancing neuronal survival. Promotes cell proliferation and neurogenesis in undifferentiated neural pro-genitor cells at the embryonic stage and inhibits differentiation of astrocyte. Its neurotrophic activity is exerted via MAPK1/ERK2, MAPK3/ERK1 and AKT1/AKT pathways. Neurotrophic activity is enhanced by binding to heme. Acts also as an anorexigenic neurotrophic factor that contributes to energy balance (By similarity). Plays a role in the human tumorigenesis (PubMed:22748190).
