RA175/SynCAM1/Cadm1 (Cadm1), a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, is a synaptic cell adhesion molecule that has a PDZ-binding motif at the C-terminal region. It promotes the formation of presynaptic terminals and induces functional synapses in the central nervous system. Cadm1-deficient (knockout [KO]) mice show behavioral abnormalities, including excessive aggression and anxiety, but do not show any symptoms of neuromuscular disorder, although neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) have… CONTINUE READING
