High impact information on CNTN6


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of CNTN6

  • Northern blot analysis of mRNA isolated from different regions of the adult human nervous system showed that the hNB-3 mRNA content was regionally different by dozens-fold, although the mRNA was detected in all regions, as a transcript of 3.7 kb [1].
  • Chromosomal localization of hNB-3, using fluorescence in situ hybridization, was assigned to 3p25-26 [1].
