Abstract

This review outlines the neuroprotective activities and structural specificities of two distinct proteins, activity-dependent neuroprotective protein, a protein assigned transcription factor/chromatin remodeling activity, and carboxypeptidase E, a classic exopeptidase. Future studies will elucidate how these two versatile proteins converge onto a similar endpoint: neuroprotection.
