RGD Curation Notes
Note Type Note Reference
gene_domains extracellular domain contains three subdomains: an N-terminal globular domain (domain 1), a central extended domain that has the sites for glycosaminoglycan (GAG) attachment (domain 2), and a juxtamembrane domain (domain 3) 632592
gene_expression expressed in neurons and macrophages 625651
gene_process domains 1 and 3 of NG2 can inhibit neurite growth independently 632592
gene_process may prohibit axonal regeneration after injury 625651
gene_regulation protein expression increases after 24 hr of injury, peaks at 1 week, and remains elevated for at least an additional 7 weeks after spinal cord injury (SCI) 625651
