Background Information


NeuN, also known as FOX3 or RBFOX3, belongs to a family of tissue-specific splicing regulators and is involved in neural circuitry balance, as well as neurogenesis and synaptogenesis (PMID: 26619789).

Tissue specificity

NeuN is exclusively present in post-mitotic neurons and is absent from neural progenitors, oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, and glia (PMID: 1483388).

Involvement in disease

· NeuN cytoplasmic localization is increased in the neurons of patients with HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (PMID: 24215932).


There are 4 isoforms of NeuN, migrating in the 45-50 kDa range (PMID: 21747913).

Post-translational modifications

Currently not known.

Cellular localization

NeuN predominantly localizes to the nucleus but can also be present in the cytoplasm. Isoforms of NeuN differ in their cytoplasmic/nucleus localization (PMID: 21747913).
