Quick Reference

A heparin-binding growth factor (neurite growth-promoting factor 2, NEGF2, 121 aa) of the TGFβ superfamily that is 46% homologous with NEGF1 (pleiotropin). Both NEGF1 and NEGF2 have neurite outgrowth-promoting activity and may play a role in nervous system development. Nucleolin binds midkine.
