|Function||Promotes growth and fasciculation of neurites from cultured hippocampal neurons. May be involved in fasciculation as well as myelination of developing neural axons. May have a role in regeneration as well as neural plasticity in the adult nervous system. May mediate homophilic as well as heterophilic cell-cell interaction and contribute to signal transduction through its intracellular domain (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell projection, axon. Note=Associated with axons of neuronal cells|

The amphoterin-induced gene and ORF (AMIGO1) protein is a brain-enriched, glycosylated transmembrane immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily protein with six extracellular leucine-rich repeats (LRRs) and one Ig-like domain. It and the related proteins AMIGO2 and AMIGO3 are thought to be cell adhesion molecules expressed on fiber tracts of neuronal tissues and participate in their formation (1). AMIGO1 has also been suggested to play important roles in dendritic outgrowth during development and could modulate the survival of developing and adult neurons (2).
