  • Function
    Contactins mediate cell surface interactions during nervous system development. Involved in the formation of paranodal axo-glial junctions in myelinated peripheral nerves and in the signaling between axons and myelinating glial cells via its association with CNTNAP1. Participates in oligodendrocytes generation by acting as a ligand of NOTCH1. Its association with NOTCH1 promotes NOTCH1 activation through the released notch intracellular domain (NICD) and subsequent translocation to the nucleus. Interaction with TNR induces a repulsion of neurons and an inhibition of neurite outgrowth.
  • Tissue specificity
    Strongly expressed in brain and in neuroblastoma and retinoblastoma cell lines. Lower levels of expression in lung, pancreas, kidney and skeletal muscle.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CNTN1 are the cause of Compton-North congenital myopathy (CNCM) [MIM:612540]. CNCM is a familial lethal form of congenital onset muscle weakness, inherited in an autosomal-recessive fashion and characterized by a secondary loss of beta2-syntrophin and alpha-dystrobrevin from the muscle sarcolemma, central nervous system involvement, and fetal akinesia.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. Contactin family.
    Contains 4 fibronectin type-III domains.
    Contains 6 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
