Adhesion Molecules, Neuron-Glia

Cell Adhesion Molecules that mediate Neuron-Neuron adhesion and Neuron-Astrocyte adhesion. They are expressed on Neurons and Schwann Cells, but not Astrocytes and are involved in Neuronal migration, Neurite Fasciculation, and outgrowth. Ng-CAM is immunologically and structurally distinct from NCAM.
