Rat Nogo-A is a newly discovered member of the reticulon family of transmembrane proteins. This family is characterized by the presence of a nonsignal sequence-containing N-terminus, a topologically conserved approximately 200 amino acid (aa) C-terminus that contains two transmembrane domains and an ER-retention motif, and a punctate intracellular distribution within the ER that is reminescent of a reticulum.1, 2
Images: Nogo-A inhibits neurite outgrowth. A. Embryonic chick dorsal root ganglion (DRG) cells exhibit neurite outgrowth when cultured on nitrocellulose-coated plates treated with laminin. Precoating similar plates with recombinant rat Nogo-A (100 µg/mL) completely inhibits neurite outgrowth from embryonic chick DRG cells.
Nogo-A in rat exists in four isoforms. 3 - 5 The full length rat Nogo-A is 1163 aa in length and contains a 989 aa N-terminus, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, a 94 aa connecting “loop”, a second 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 38 aa C-terminus. Three areas are of particular interest. One is a stretch of 66 aa within the 94 aa transmembrane connecting loop (SWISSPROT defines this region as being 94 aa in length while the original cloning papers identified it as being 66 aa in length). This segment is reported to bind to the GPI-linked Nogo receptor/p75 complex on axons and induce growth cone collapse. 6 - 8 Two other areas in the N-terminus have also been discovered to have bioactivity.6, 9, 10 The exact topology of Nogo-A is unclear. With two transmembrane segments, the N- and C-termini may be extracellular with the “loop” region intracellular, or the situation could be reversed. 11, 12 Alternatively, the loop region and N-terminus may be on the same side of the membrane.6 Nogo-A is expressed in neurons, endothelial cells. oligodendrocytes, fibroblasts and myoblasts.10, 13, 14 Rat Nogo-A is 78% aa identical to human Nogo-A overall, with 98% aa identical in the loop region and 81% aa identity in the aa 544 - 725 segment.
