Axonal Membrane Protein

NEURO-KUFREK

The protein composition of the neuronal membrane varies by location. Some membrane proteins are found primarily in the axon; some only in the somatodendritic compartment.

Which of the following statements is CORRECT?

A

The $K^+$/$Cl^-$ co-transporter, KCC2, is an axonal membrane protein.

B

The neuron-glia cell adhesion molecule, NgCAM, is an axonal membrane protein.

C

The transferrin receptor, TfR, is an axonal membrane protein.

D

Both NgCAM and TfR are axonal membrane proteins
