Vectors for Human CNTF

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol CNTF
  • Species Human (Homo sapiens)
  • Offical Full Name ciliary neurotrophic factor
  • Other Aliases HCNTF
  • Other Desigations ciliary neurotrophic factor; Ciliary Neuronotrophic Factor
  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    The protein encoded by this gene is a polypeptide hormone whose actions appear to be restricted to the nervous system where it promotes neurotransmitter synthesis and neurite outgrowth in certain neuronal populations. The protein is a potent survival factor for neurons and oligodendrocytes and may be relevant in reducing tissue destruction during inflammatory attacks. A mutation in this gene, which results in aberrant splicing, leads to ciliary neurotrophic factor deficiency, but this phenotype is not causally related to neurologic disease. A read-through transcript variant composed of the upstream ZFP91 gene and CNTF sequence has been identified, but it is thought to be non-coding. Read-through transcription of ZFP91 and CNTF has also been observed in mouse. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010]
