Role of Neurogranin

Neurogranin is a post synaptic protein that is expressed in dendritic cytoplasm. It modulates calcium-mediated signaling pathways and plays critical role in synaptic plasticity.

Recently Neurogranin (48-76) was identified as a major neurogranin peptide fragment in human brain and it was found that patients with Alzheimer’s Disease have elevated levels of Neurogranin (48-76) in cerebrospinal fluid.
