Secondary Information

Protein Function regulates neuronal activity-dependent expression of BDNF
Biochemical Properties Extensive analysis of the CaRF sequence has shown that it has no significant homology to any known proteins in the GenBank database and no domains that would identify it as a member of a family of transcription factors.
