Although generally accepted to play an important role in development, the precise functional significance of NCAM remains to be elucidated. Correlative and interventive studies suggest a role for polysialylated NCAM in neurite elaboration. In the adult NCAM polysialylation continues to be expressed in regions of the central nervous system which retain… CONTINUE READING
