Neuropilin (previously known as the A5 protein) is a membrane protein identified in Xenopus and is presumed to be involved in the target recognition of the optic nerve fibers. We have isolated cDNAs encoding the chick homologue of neuropilin, using the Xenopus neuropilin cDNA as a hybridization probe. The predicted amino acid sequence of chick neuropilin is 75% identical to that of the Xenopus homologue. A cell aggregation assay showed that fibroblasts transfected with the chick neuropilin cDNA… CONTINUE READING
