Contactin 6

NB-3, Cntn6
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. It is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored neuronal membrane protein that functions as a cell adhesion molecule. It may play a role in the formation of axon connections in the developing nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Intercalation of highly dispersed metal nanoclusters into a layered metal oxide for photocatalytic overall water splitting.
Maeda et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Angew Chem Int Ed Engl, Mar 2015
Metal nanoclusters (involving metals such as platinum) with a diameter smaller than 1 nm were deposited on the interlayer nanospace of KCa2 Nb3 O10 using the electrostatic attraction between a cationic metal complex (e.g., [Pt(NH3 )4 ]Cl2 ) and a negatively charged two-dimensional Ca2 Nb3 O10 (-) sheet, without the aid of any additional reagent.

Surti et al., Pittsburgh, United States. In J Neurodev Disord, 2014
Copy number variations of contactin genes (CNTNs), including CNTN3, CNTN4, CNTN5, and CNTN6, have been suggested to be associated with these disorders.
ABCG2 impairs the activity of the aurora kinase inhibitor tozasertib but not of alisertib.
Cinatl et al., Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In Bmc Res Notes, 2014
RESULTS: The tozasertib concentration that reduces cell viability by 50% (IC50) was dramatically increased in ABCG2-transduced UKF-NB-3(ABCG2) cells (48.8-fold) compared to UKF-NB-3 cells and vector-transduced control cells.
Identification of miRNAs contributing to neuroblastoma chemoresistance.
Vandesompele et al., Malta. In Comput Struct Biotechnol J, 2014
METHODS: Individual subcultures of chemosensitive SH-SY5Y and UKF-NB-3 cells were rendered chemoresistant to doxorubicin (SH-SY5Y, UKF-NB-3) or etoposide (SH-SY5Y).
A nanobody modulates the p53 transcriptional program without perturbing its functional architecture.
Gettemans et al., Gent, Belgium. In Nucleic Acids Res, 2014
Nb3 preferentially binds 'structural' mutant p53, i.e.
A candidate gene association study further corroborates involvement of contactin genes in autism.
Poot, Utrecht, Netherlands. In Mol Syndromol, 2014
In the ASD cohort, a combination of risk alleles of SNPs in CNTN6 (rs9878022 [A]; OR = 3.749) and in CNTNAP2 (rs7804520 [G]; OR = 2.437) was found more frequently than would be expected under random segregation, albeit this association was not statistically significant.
Trisomy 1q41-qter and monosomy 3p26.3-pter in a family with a translocation (1;3): further delineation of the syndromes.
Morán-Barroso et al., Villa Cuauhtémoc, Mexico. In Bmc Med Genomics, 2013
The implicated chromosomal regions were defined by microarray analysis, the patient had a trisomy 1q41-qter of 30.3 Mb in extension comprising about 240 protein coding genes and a monosomy 3p26.3-pter of 1.7 Mb including only the genes CNTN6 (MIM 607220) and CHL1 (MIM 607416), which have been implicated in dendrite development.
Single gene microdeletions and microduplication of 3p26.3 in three unrelated families: CNTN6 as a new candidate gene for intellectual disability.

Frei et al., Praha, Czech Republic. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2011
In contrast, two carbenium ions, ellipticine-13-ylium and ellipticine-12-ylium, derived from two activation ellipticine metabolites, 13-hydroxyellipticine and 12-hydroxyellipticine, generate two major deoxyguanosine adducts in DNA found in the human breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells, leukemia HL-60 and CCRF-CEM cells, neuroblastoma IMR-32, UKF-NB-3, and UKF-NB-4 cells and glioblastoma U87MG cells in vitro and in rat breast carcinoma in vivo.
