basic FUNCTION
  • may regulate the development and maintenance of the central nervous system
  • involved in processes subserving both the organization of the cortical region during development and the functional activity and maintenance of the mature hippocampal neurons
  • may regulate the development and maintenance of the CNS
  • might control the size of non-neuronal cell population such as haemopoietic cells
