Neurite outgrowth factor (NOF) is an extracellular matrix (ECM) protein in the laminin family and its ligand, gicerin, is a novel cell adhesion molecule in the immunoglobulin superfamily. Gicerin has a homophilic adhesive activity as well as a heterotypic manner to NOF. In the nervous systems, gicerin is expressed during developmental stage when neurons migrate or extend neurites to form a neural network. Gicerin promotes neurite extension and migration of embryonic neurons in vitro by its… CONTINUE READING
