    basic FUNCTION
  • regulation if tissue growth, transition from cell proliferation to differentiation
  • neuron guiding activity
  • may play a role in mammary carcinogenesis as well as morphogenesis, and the expression may be inversely correlated with mammary carcinogenicity
  • multifunctional receptor implicated in axon navigation, neuronal differentiation, morphogenesis, and cell death
  • required for the establishment of the pseudostratified epithelium of the neural tube, probably by promoting cell adhesion
  • netrin-neogenin signaling is an important extracellular cue in regulation of myogenic differentiation and myofiber size
  • plays a critical role in iron homeostasis by regulation of HFE2 secretion and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling
  • regulates iron homeostasis via inhibiting secretion of HFE2, an inhibitor of BMP signaling, to enhance BMP signaling and hepcidin expression
  • receptor for netrins and proteins of the repulsive guidance molecule family, is a receptor for BMPs and modulates SMAD signal transduction
  • negatively regulates the functions of BMP and that this effect of neogenin is mediated by the activation of RHOA
  • acts as a receptor for BMPs and activates RhoA in a ligand-dependent manner
  • regulates SHH signaling in the limb bud to achieve proper digit patterning
  • guidance receptor neogenin holds crucial importance for the propagation of an acute inflammatory response
  • neogenin is required for the rapid turnover of TMPRSS6 through facilitating its internalization
  • novel role for NEO1 as a regulator of the neuroblast cell cycle
  • is a key component of the actin nucleation machinery governing junctional stability
  • is a pivotal component of the adherens junctions (AJs), where it influences both cadherin dynamics and junctional tension
  • NEO1 acts as a scaffold to facilitate assembly of the HFE2·BMP·BMP receptor complex to induce hepcidin expression

    a component
  • part of a multiprotein complex at the hepatocyte membrane involving BMP, its receptors, and hemojuvelin (HFE2)
  • may form a receptor complex with UNC5B for signal transduction between BMPs to RHOA
  • NEO1 likely forms a ternary complex with both TMPRSS6 and HFE2 at the plasma membrane
    small molecule
  • receptor for RGMA and RGMB (RGM/neogenin regulates cell fate by controlling the DAPK1 activity)
  • interaction with NTN4 and UNC5B (NTN4 acts as an antiangiogenic factor through binding to neogenin and recruitment of UNC5B)
  • binds to cleaved and noncleaved HFE2 (the hemojuvelin binding site on neogenin is to the membrane-proximal fifth and sixth FNIII domains)
  • receptor for the neuronal axon guidance cues netrins and repulsive guidance molecules repulsive guidance molecules (RGMA and RGMB)
  • may stabilize HFE2, a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored protein that interacts with neogenin and suppresses its secretion (Lee 2010)
  • interacts with DAPK and reduces DAPK autophosphorylation
  • bind directly with BMP2, BMP4, BMP6, and BMP7
  • DCC and NEO1, a family of immunoglobin-domain-containing transmembrane receptors for netrins, interact with MYO10
  • NEO1 interacted with TMPRSS6 as well as with HFE2 and facilitated the cleavage of HFE2 by TMPRSS6
  • death dependence receptor, that is a new direct SHH downstream regulator in neural precursor proliferation
  • NEO1 enhances TMPRSS6 degradation by facilitating cell surface TMPRSS6 internalization in a dynamin-dependent manner
  • acts to synchronize neuroblast migration and terminal differentiation through the regulation of neuroblast cell cycle kinetics within the neurogenic microenvironment of the rostral migratory stream (RMS)
  • HFE2 can simultaneously bind to both BMP2 and the ubiquitously expressed cell surface receptor NEO1
  • RGMB-NEO1-mediated cell-cell interactions between newly born neurons and progenitor cells control the ratio of glia and neurons produced in the olfactory epithelium (OE)
  • NEO1 is implicated in the maintenance of neural stem cells in the hippocampus by enhancing PCNA expressions
