Chemical Neural Cell Adhesion Molecules

Name Neural Cell Adhesion Molecules
Equivalent Terms Cell Adhesion Molecule, Neural | Cell Adhesion Molecules, Neural | NCAM | Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule
Definition Cell adhesion molecule involved in a diverse range of contact-mediated interactions among neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and myotubes. It is widely but transiently expressed in many tissues early in embryogenesis. Four main isoforms exist, including CD56; (ANTIGENS, CD56); but there are many other variants resulting from alternative splicing and post-translational modifications.
