Name Cell Adhesion Molecules, Neuron-Glia
Equivalent Terms Adhesion Molecules, Neuron-Glia | Cell Adhesion Molecules, Neuron Glia | G4 Antigen | Neuron Glia Adhesion Molecules | Neuron-Glia Adhesion Molecules | Neuron Glia Cell Adhesion Molecules | Neuron-Glia Cell Adhesion Molecules | Ng-CAM
Definition Cell adhesion molecules that mediate neuron-neuron adhesion and neuron-astrocyte adhesion. They are expressed on neurons and Schwann cells, but not astrocytes and are involved in neuronal migration, neurite fasciculation, and outgrowth. Ng-CAM is immunologically and structurally distinct from NCAM.
