First immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM-2; member of the I-set of Ig superfamily (IgSF) domains
The members here are composed of the first immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM-2 (OCAM/mamFas II, RNCAM). NCAM-2 is organized similarly to NCAM-1, including five N-terminal Ig-like domains and two fibronectin type III domains. NCAM-2 is differentially expressed in the developing and mature olfactory epithelium (OE), and may function like NCAM, as an adhesion molecule. This group belongs to the I-set of IgSF domains, having A-B-E-D strands in one beta-sheet and A'-G-F-C-C' in the other. Like the V-set Ig domains, members of the I-set have a discontinuous A strand, but lack a C" strand.
