Blocking Peptide

ELISA50 ng/well

Size 50 μg



The Semaphorin family of axon guidance molecules includes secreted, transmembrane, and GPI-anchored extracellular molecules that have been implicated in neuron development, vascular disease, and tumor progression. There are eight classes of semaphorin genes, all of which are characterized by a conserved 500 amino acid, cystine-rich Sema domain. Semaphorin 6A (Sema-6A) is a single-pass type I membrane protein that contains a plexin-semaphorin-integrin (PSI) domain and a Sema domain. Sema-6A is active as a homodimer or oligomer. The Sema-6A homodimer interacts with a Plexin A2 homodimer. Sema-6a promotes reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton to regulate normal granule cell migration in the developing cerebellum and to control axon guidance in the developing central nervous system. In addition, Sema-6a has been implicated in oligodendrocyte myelination and may alter VEGF signaling during angiogenesis.
