The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the ninjurin (for nerve injury induced) family. It is a cell surface adhesion protein that is upregulated in Schwann cells surrounding the distal segment of injured nerve, and promotes neurite outgrowth, thus may have a role in nerve regeneration after nerve injury.

NINJ2 has several biochemical functions, for example, protein binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by NINJ2 itself. We selected most functions NINJ2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with NINJ2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.

NINJ2 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with NINJ2 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of NINJ2.
