Neuroglycan C (NGC) is a membrane-spanning chondroitin sulfate (CS) proteoglycan that is expressed predominantly in the central nervous system (CNS). NGC dramatically changed its structure from a proteoglycan to a nonproteoglycan form with cerebellar development, whereas a small portion of NGC molecules existed in a nonproteoglycan form in the other areas of the mature CNS, suggesting that the CS glycosylation of NGC is developmentally regulated in the whole CNS. As primary cultured neurons and…

Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans in the brain.
Neuroglycan C, A Brain-Specific Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan, Interacts with Pleiotrophin, A Heparin-Binding Growth Factor
TLDR
Results suggest that NGC interacts with PTN, and pleiotrophin bound to both chondroitin sulfate-bearing NGC and chONDroitinase-treated NGC prepared from the neonatal rat brain.
Neuroglycan C Is a Novel Midkine Receptor Involved in Process Elongation of Oligodendroglial Precursor-like Cells*
TLDR
It is concluded that neuroglycan C is a novel component of midkine receptors involved in process elongation in undifferentiated bipolar CG-4 cells.
Expression and identification of a new splice variant of neuroglycan C, a transmembrane chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan, in the human brain
TLDR
The expression of NGC in the human brain, mainly in the hippocampus, was studied and some observations were confirmed by conducting experiments using rat brain, and NGC‐IV, which was first found in the present study, had the shortest cytoplasmic domain among the four variants.
Proteoglycan profiling of human, rat and mouse insulin-secreting cells
TLDR
Cell-targeted mapping of the GAG glycoproteome forms an important basis for better understanding of endocrine cellular physiology, and the novel CS and HS sites presented here provide important knowledge for future studies.
Characterization of C. elegans Chondroitin Proteoglycans and Their Large Functional and Structural Heterogeneity; Evolutionary Aspects on Structural Differences Between Humans and the Nematode.
TLDR
Recent data in relation to previous knowledge of core proteins and GAG-attachment sites in Chn and CS proteoglycans of C.elegans are discussed, indicating that specialization of proteoglycan-mediated functions may have evolved early in metazoan evolution.
Diverse roles for glycosaminoglycans in neural patterning
TLDR
This review discusses recent evidence suggesting GAGs have specific roles in neuronal patterning and synaptogenesis, and considers the function of proteoglycan core proteins in these processes, stressing their likely role as co‐receptors of different signaling pathways in a redundant and context‐dependent manner.
Differential neuroglycan C expression during retinal degeneration in Rpe65−/− mice
TLDR
During retinal degeneration in Rpe65−/− mice, NGC expression is induced in the neural retina, but not in the RPE, where NGC is expressed at highest levels.
Regulated expression and neural functions of human natural killer-1 (HNK-1) carbohydrate
TLDR
Recent findings about HNK-1 carbohydrate are described that provide further insights into the mechanism of its expression and function in the nervous system.

Genomic Organization and Expression Pattern of Mouse Neuroglycan C in the Cerebellar Development*
TLDR
Western blot analysis demonstrated that, although N GC in the immature cerebellum existed in a proteoglycan form, most NGC in the mature Cerebellum did not bear chondroitin sulfate chain(s), indicating that NGC is a typical part-time proteoglyca.
Phosphorylation of Neuroglycan C, a Brain-specific Transmembrane Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan, and Its Localization in the Lipid Rafts*
TLDR
This is the first report to demonstrate that NGC can be phosphorylated both intracellularly and pericellularly, and the findings suggest that a kinase with a specificity similar to that of casein kinase II is responsible for the NGC ectodomain phosphorylation.
Molecular interactions of neural chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans in the brain development.
TLDR
This review mainly summarizes recent studies on the involvement of these three classes of proteoglycan in cell-cell and cell-substratum interactions during the brain development.
Specific Molecular Interactions of Oversulfated Chondroitin Sulfate E with Various Heparin-binding Growth Factors
TLDR
The findings suggest the possibility of CS-E being a binding partner, a coreceptor, or a genuine receptor for various Hep-binding growth factors in the brain and possibly also in other tissues.
Proteoglycans in the developing brain: new conceptual insights for old proteins.
TLDR
This review summarizes the most recent data on structures and functions of brain proteoglycans and focuses on new physiological concepts for their potential roles in the developing central nervous system.
Nerve Growth Factor‐Induced Changes in the Structure of Sulfated Proteoglycans in PC 12 Pheochromocytoma Cells
TLDR
Results indicate that structural changes in PGs during the neuritogenesis in PC12 cells induced by NGF occurred mostly in cell‐associated PGs and preceded elongation of neurites.
Occurrence of three distinct molecular species of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan in the developing rat brain.
TLDR
Observations indicate that at least three distinct types of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan occur in the developing rat brain.
