    • Function

      Thought to act as molecular guidance cue in cellular migration, and function appears to be mediated by interaction with roundabout homolog receptors. During neural development involved in axonal navigation at the ventral midline of the neural tube and projection of axons to different regions. SLIT1 and SLIT2 seem to be essential for midline guidance in the forebrain by acting as repulsive signal preventing inappropriate midline crossing by axons projecting from the olfactory bulb. In spinal chord development may play a role in guiding commissural axons once they reached the floor plate by modulating the response to netrin. In vitro, silences the attractive effect of NTN1 but not its growth-stimulatory effect and silencing requires the formation of a ROBO1-DCC complex. May be implicated in spinal chord midline post-crossing axon repulsion. In vitro, only commissural axons that crossed the midline responded to SLIT2. In the developing visual system appears to function as repellent for retinal ganglion axons by providing a repulsion that directs these axons along their appropriate paths prior to, and after passage through, the optic chiasm. In vitro, collapses and repels retinal ganglion cell growth cones. Seems to play a role in branching and arborization of CNS sensory axons, and in neuronal cell migration. In vitro, Slit homolog 2 protein N-product, but not Slit homolog 2 protein C-product, repels olfactory bulb (OB) but not dorsal root ganglia (DRG) axons, induces OB growth cones collapse and induces branching of DRG axons. Seems to be involved in regulating leukocyte migration.
    • Tissue specificity

      Fetal lung and kidney, and adult spinal cord. Weak expression in adult adrenal gland, thyroid, trachea and other tissues examined.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.
      Contains 7 EGF-like domains.
      Contains 1 laminin G-like domain.
      Contains 20 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
      Contains 4 LRRCT domains.
      Contains 4 LRRNT domains.
    • Domain

      The leucine-rich repeat domain is sufficient for guiding both axon projection and neuronal migration, in vitro.
    • Cellular localization

      Secreted. The C-terminal cleavage protein is more diffusible than the larger N-terminal protein that is more tightly cell associated.

    Customer reviews and Q&As


    We are assuming that the antibody is detecting the mature Slit homolog 2 protein C-product. The note that states that the predicted size is 169 kDa is referring to the precursor, before any processing of the protein by cleavage and other post-translation modifications. The UniProt database entry for the human protein lists some of these modifications:
