UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for TENM2 Gene
Involved in neural development, regulating the establishment of proper connectivity within the nervous system. Promotes the formation of filopodia and enlarged growth cone in neuronal cells. Induces homophilic cell-cell adhesion (By similarity). May function as a cellular signal transducer.
Isoform 2: Acts as a ligand of the ADGRL1 receptor. Mediates axon guidance and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion.
Ten-2 intracellular domain: Induces gene transcription inhibition.
