Synonyms: arginine-rich, mutated in early stage tumors-like 1 | ARMETL1
Comment: CDNF is a dopamine neuron neurotropic factor [5]. It provides cytoprotective effects in neurodegenerative disease models by reducing the activating effect of endoplasmic reticulum stress on the unfolded protein response (UPR) pathway [4,7]. Specifically, CDNF has been shown to protect dopamine neurons and improve motor function in animal Parkinson's disease models [1-2,5-6,8]. However therapeutic use of proteins like CDNF is invasive (intracranial administration) and requires clinical expertise.
