CD171/ NCAM-L1 (neural cell adhesion molecule L1) is a 220-240kDa axonal type I membrane glycoprotein belonging to the cell adhesion molecules subgroup of immunoglobulin supergene family. It plays an important role in mediating nervous system development, including neuronal migration, differentiation, axon growth, and fasciculation. CD171 is also involved in cell adhesion and signal transduction by mediating homotypic and heterotypic cell-cell interactions. Expression of CD171 has been found on tissues arising from neuroectoderm, monocytes and mature monocytic-derived and follicular DCs, a minor subset of lymphocytes, endothelial cells, reticular fibroblasts, certain epithelial cells and several malignant tumors including colon and breast carcinomas, colon melanoma, tumor cells of neuronal and mesothelial origin.
