Scientific background

Astrotactin 1 (ASTN-1) is an integral membrane perforin-like protein known to play a critical role in neurodevelopment. The protein is responsible for the formation of neuron–glial fiber contacts in the cerebellum where it plays an important role in neuronal migration1,2.

Astrotactin 1 is also expressed in post-mitotic neuronal precursors of the cerebellum, hippocampus, cerebrum and olfactory bulb. The protein demonstrates an active role in the establishment of laminar structures1.

Astrotactin 1 structure reveals a large extracellular C-terminal domain that is complemented by an N-terminal cytosolic domain separated by two transmembrane α-helices1.

Studies have found that genetic variations associated with Astrotactin 1 are connected to various neurodevelopmental disorders and other neurological pathologies including Alzheimer's disease1. In addition, ASTN1 null mice exhibit slow migration rates of cerebellar granule cells, smaller cerebellar size and reduced glial neuron binding2 and poorer balance and coordination than wild-type1. Conversely, increased levels of Astrotactin 1 are detected in rat brain following hippocampal injury, linking the protein to repair processes.
