High impact information on NEXN


Anatomical context of NEXN

  • NELIN, a new F-actin associated protein, stimulates HeLa cell migration and adhesion [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of NEXN

  • Immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation demonstrated that NELIN product was associated with F-actin [1].
  • The title binuclear complex, [CuFe(CN)(5)(C(8)H(21)N(5)O(2))(NO)] x 2H(2)O or [CuFe(nelin)(CN)(5)(NO)] x 2H(2)O (nelin is 5-methyl-5-nitro-3,7-diazanonane-1,9-diamine) consists of discrete binuclear mixed-metal species, with a Cu centre linked to an Fe centre through a cyano bridge, and two water molecules of crystallization [2].
