Neuronal pentraxin receptor

The protein encoded by this gene is an integral membrane protein, and functions as a neuronal receptor. It is thought to mediate neuronal uptake of the snake venom toxin, taipoxin, and its transport into the synapses. Studies in rat indicate that translation of this mRNA initiates at a non-AUG (CUG) codon. This site is also conserved in human and mouse. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

study suggests that NCAM-120, alpha-dystroglycan, and NPR are candidate biomarkers in CSF for neurodegenerative diseases, and that the changes in the CSF level of NPR may be specific for Alzheimer's disease

The purpose of the present study was to assess the toxic effect of taipoxin in SCLC-cell lines and to determine if toxicity correlates to NPR and NP1 and NP2 expression levels.

non-AUG translation initiation site. Comparison of rat determined N-terminal amino acid sequence with cDNA sequence indicates that a CUG codon is used as an initiator codon and codes for a methionine. The CTG is present in cDNAs of mouse, rat, and human.
