|Netrin‑4 in Mouse Brain. Netrin‑4 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse brain (cerebellum) using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Mouse Netrin‑4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1132) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Netrins/UNC-6 (netr: Sanskrit for “one who guides”) are a family of laminin-related small proteins that are involved in neurite outgrowth and axon guidance. Netrins binds to the DCC and UNC5 family of receptors to attract or repel axons. Mouse Netrin-4, also known as beta -Netrin, is synthesized as a 629 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 19 aa signal sequence, a 428 aalaminin-related region containing an N-terminal laminin globular domain (domain VI) followed by 3 laminin EGF-like repeats, and a 182 aa C domain rich in basic aa residues that serves as a heparin binding site. Netrin-4 has been reported to exist as both a monomer and a dimer. The dimeric form was reported to be the less active of the two. Mouse Netrin-4 shares 31%, 29%, and 25% aa sequence identity with mouse Netrin-1, -3, and -G1a, respectively. It also shares 89% aa sequence identity with human Netrin-4. Netrin-4 has widespread expression, occurring in nervous tissues such as embryonic floor plate and postnatal neurons such as cerebellar granule cells and hippocampal pyramidal cells. It also is found in non-neural tissues such as adult Bowman’s capsule and medullary tubular epithelium in kidney, and embryonic pancreatic and intestinal epithelium, plus cells of the ureteric bud. Netrin-4 expression is often associated with basement membrane. Netrin-4 has been shown to initiate axon outgrowth from olfactory bulb explants (1-7).
