Chemical Cell Adhesion Molecules, Neuronal

Name Cell Adhesion Molecules, Neuronal
Equivalent Terms Adhesion Molecules, Axon-Associated | Axon Associated Adhesion Molecules | Axon-Associated Adhesion Molecules | Molecules, Axon-Associated Adhesion | Neuronal Cell Adhesion Molecules
Definition Surface ligands that mediate cell-to-cell adhesion and function in the assembly and interconnection of the vertebrate nervous system. These molecules promote cell adhesion via a homophilic mechanism. These are not to be confused with NEURAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES, now known to be expressed in a variety of tissues and cell types in addition to nervous tissue.
Curation Status No associations have been curated for this chemical yet.
