Meteorin

Gene

METRN

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Involved in both glial cell differentiation and axonal network formation during neurogenesis. Promotes astrocyte differentiation and transforms cerebellar astrocytes into radial glia. Also induces axonal extension in small and intermediate neurons of sensory ganglia by activating nearby satellite glia (By similarity).By similarity
