Neuritin is a neurotrophic factor that is expressed in response to the induction of neuronal activity by NGF, BDNF, NT3, and other neural stimulators. It is expressed primarily in postmitotic-differentiating neurons of the developing nervous system, and in neuronal structures related to synaptic plasticity in the adult nervous system. Neuritin acts as a molecular mediator of neurite outgrowth, neuronal survival, and synaptic maturation. Recombinant Human/Rat Neuritin is a covalently disulfide-linked homodimer, consisting of two 9.72 kDa polypeptide monomers, each containing 88 amino acid residues.
