Nerve tissue protein


Nerve tissue protein

A nerve tissue protein is a biological molecule related to the function and maintenance of normal nervous tissue.[1] An example would include, for example, the generation of myelin which insulates and protects nerves. These are typically calcium-binding proteins.
