agrin

Secreted protein (200 kD) isolated from the synapse-rich electric organ of Torpedo californica that induces the formation of synaptic specializations on myotubes in culture. Present in muscle cells before innervation, and concentrated at the neuromuscular junction once AChR-clustering occurs. The release of agrin from motor axon terminals is thought to trigger the formation of the postsynaptic apparatus at developing and regenerating neuromuscula … ...

Agrin

Agrin is a large proteoglycan whose best-characterised role is in the development of the neuromuscular junction during embryogenesis. Agrin is named based on its involvement in the aggregation of acetylcholine receptors during synaptogenesis. In humans, this protein is encoded by the AGRN gene. This protein has nine domains homologous to protease ...
