netrin


Also found in: Wikipedia.

net·rin

(net'trin),
Diffusible proteins that provide chemotactic cues to guide axons. Netrin-1 is made by and secreted from floor plate cells of the neural tube. Netrin-2 is synthesized in the lower regions of the neural tube.

Third, two classes of molecular inhibitors to growth are present in the lesioned CNS to actively block axonal growth: inhibitory extracellular matrix proteins, including chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans, and inhibitory proteins present on adult myelin, including Nogo, myelin-associated glycoprotein, oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein, netrin, semaphorins, Wnt proteins, and others [64-66].
Soluble adenylyl cyclase responds to both extracellular (tumor necrosis factor, netrin, nerve growth factor) and intracellular (bicarbonate, pH, calcium) signals.
He says that the latest set of findings suggest that integrin helps the anchor cell orient itself toward the basement membranes, and that it also directs netrin to build the puncta in the proper place to ease an opening through.
The Robo receptor is responsive to the repellent protein, slit, also expressed by the midline, but not netrin (Kidd, Bland, & Goodman, 1999; Stein & Tessier-Lavigne, 2001).

But other axons grow away from netrin, he reports this week at the Society for Neuroscience meeting held in Miami.
Thus, like netrins, collapsin molecules may represent a family of molecules whose unknown number of members have similar structures and functions, Raper notes.
The team purified the two netrin proteins from 25,000 embryonic chick brains and obtained a partial amino acid sequence of the proteins.
The discovery of the netrins reinforced Ramon y Cajal's early theory by isolating two of the postulated chemical attractants that direct movement and growth of axons in the spine.
