Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Visinin-like protein 1 (VSNL1), also known as VILIP1, is a calcium sensor protein expressed exclusively in neurons. Highest levels of VSNL1 expression are found in cerebellar Purkinje cells. VSNL1 has been implicated in the modulation of cell signaling cascades via regulation of adenyl cyclase activity (Braunewell et al., 1997). Additionally, VSNL1 has been associated with amyloid plaques and neurofibrillar tangles in Alzheimer’s disease (Schnurra et al., 2001).
