      • Hormone: QRFP

      • Hormone: ADNP


      • Receptor: Sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor 5

        Induced phenotype:

        • regulation of oligodendrocyte differentiation
          • In the brain, S1P5 is predominantly expressed in white matter tracts and cells of oligodendrocyte lineage, suggesting its potential roles in maturation and myelination of oligodendrocytes. [1]
      • Receptor: Lysophosphatidic acid receptor 1

      • Receptor: Psychosine receptor
