F3 is a 135 kDa neuronal cell surface adhesive glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin supergene family (IgSF) which mediates heterophilic contact formation among neural cells and is involved in the control of neurite growth. F3 expression is regulated, during critical developmental periods, on neuronal subpopulations thus suggesting that control of F3(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) are at high risk of nephrolithiasis (NL), but controversy still exists in terms of causes, including low urine output, hypercalciuria, hyperoxaluria, hyperuricosuria and hypocitraturia. Moreover, heterozygotes (H-CF), which may exhibit altered renal concentrating and diluting ability, have never studied so far.(More)
F3/Contactin is a neuronal glycoprotein which mediates axonal growth control via complex interactions with a number of cell surface or matrix components. As part of this developmental role, its expression undergoes differential regulation during the maturation of definite neuronal populations within the central and peripheral nervous tissue. To elucidate(More)
F3 is a developmentally regulated adhesive glycoprotein expressed by subpopulations of central and peripheral neurons which mediates neurite growth and fasciculation via cis- and trans-interactions with cell-surface or matrix components. We previously reported on the characterization of the F3 gene 5' flanking region in which we identified promoter and(More)
The incidence of urolithiasis in children has been steadily increasing in developed countries mainly due to changes in dietary habits. The occurrence of symptoms suggestive of urolithiasis in children with urinary solute abnormalities predisposing to stone formation but with normal renal ultrasound and X-ray plain film is approximately 9 times higher than(More)
