Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule (NCAM, also the cluster of differentiation CD56) is a homophilic binding glycoprotein expressed on the surface of neurons, glia, skeletal muscle and natural killer cells. NCAM has been implicated as having a role in cell–cell adhesion, neurite outgrowth, synaptic plasticity, and learning and memory.
NCAM1 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways NCAM1 participated on our site, such as Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs), Prion diseases, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with NCAM1 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
NCAM1 has several biochemical functions, for example, identical protein binding, virus receptor activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by NCAM1 itself. We selected most functions NCAM1 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with NCAM1. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
NCAM1 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 NCAM1 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of NCAM1.
