Summaries for NRN1L Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NRN1L Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is extracellular and enhances both neurite growth and neuronal survival. The encoded protein is found both as a GPI anchored membrane-bound form and as a secreted form. This activity-related ligand functions as a homodimer or heterodimer. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2017]

GeneCards Summary for NRN1L Gene

NRN1L (Neuritin 1 Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Post-translational modification- synthesis of GPI-anchored proteins. An important paralog of this gene is NRN1.
