Gene: Cntf (ciliary neurotrophic factor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cntf
Name: ciliary neurotrophic factor
Description: Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including muscle organ morphogenesis; positive regulation of tyrosine phosphorylation of STAT protein; and regulation of cell development. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease; glaucoma; multiple sclerosis; obesity; and psychotic disorder. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CNTF (ciliary neurotrophic factor).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
