Annotation
NCAM: note entry term NEURAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULE but do not confuse this entry term with NEURONAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES see CELL ADHESION MOLECULES, NEURONAL
Scope Note
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; (CD56 ANTIGEN); but there are many other variants resulting from alternative splicing and post-translational modifications. (From Pigott & Power, The Adhesion Molecule FactsBook, 1993, pp115-119)
