功能Selectively promotes the survival of dopaminergic neurons of the ventral mid-brain. Modulates GABAergic transmission to the dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra. Enhances spontaneous, as well as evoked, GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents in dopaminergic neurons (By similarity). Inhibits cell proliferation and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-induced cell death.
序列相似性Belongs to the ARMET family.
结构域The N-terminal region may be responsible for neurotrophic activity while the C-terminal region may play a role in the ER stress response.
