1H, 13C and 15N chemical shift assignments of Ninjurin1 Extracellular N-terminal Domain


Cell adhesion molecules play a crucial role in fundamental biological processes via regulating cell–cell interactions. Nerve injury induced protein1 (Ninjurin1) is a novel adhesion protein that has no significant homology with other known cell adhesion molecules. Here we present the assignment of an 81 aa construct for human Ninjurin1 Extracellular N-Terminal (ENT) domain, which comprises the critical adhesion domain.
