Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on indirect or inconclusive evidence linking the gene product to ageing in humans or in one or more model systems
Description

The NRG1 gene encodes multiple transcripts that appear to play a role in neuronal development, differentiation, and apoptosis [272]. It may be involved in neurodegenerative pathologies [1297], but it is unknown whether it plays a role in human ageing.
