  Domain Name: Ig1_NCAM-1_like
First immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM-1 and similar proteins. Ig1_NCAM-1 like: first immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM-1. NCAM-1 plays important roles in the development and regeneration of the central nervous system, in synaptogenesis and neural migration. NCAM mediates cell-cell and cell-substratum recognition and adhesion via homophilic (NCAM-NCAM), and heterophilic (NCAM-nonNCAM), interactions. NCAM is expressed as three major isoforms having different intracellular extensions. The extracellular portion of NCAM has five N-terminal Ig-like domains and two fibronectin type III domains. The double zipper adhesion complex model for NCAM homophilic binding involves the Ig1, Ig2, and Ig3 domains. By this model, Ig1 and Ig2 mediate dimerization of NCAM molecules situated on the same cell surface (cis interactions), and Ig3 domains mediate interactions between NCAM molecules expressed on the surface of opposing cells (trans interactions), through binding to the Ig1 and Ig2 domains. The adhesive ability of NCAM is modulated by the addition of polysialic acid chains to the fifth Ig-like domain. Also included in this group is NCAM-2 (also known as OCAM/mamFas II and RNCAM). NCAM-2 is differentially expressed in the developing and mature olfactory epithelium (OE).
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
