GMFB is a nerve growth factor which belongs to the actin-binding proteins ADF family, GMF subfamily. GMFB is involved in nervous system development, angiogenesis and immune function. It is especially crucial for the nervous system. GMFB causes brain cell differentiation, stimulates neural regeneration and inhibits tumor cell proliferation. It contains 1 ADF-H domain and is phosphorylated after phorbol ester stimulation. GMFB overexpression in astrocytes results in the increase of BDNF production. GMFB expression is increased by exercise, thus BDNF is important for exercise-induction of BDNF.

Wikipedia summary for GMFB:
Glia maturation factor is a nerve growth factor implicated in nervous system development, angiogenesis and immune function.
The structures of mouse glia maturation factors beta and gamma, solved by both crystallography and NMR, reveal similarities and critical differences with ADF-H (actin depolymerization factor homology) domains and suggest new means of experimentally addressing the function of this protein family.
Glia maturation factor beta
Belongs to the actin-binding proteins ADF family. GMF subfamily.
Phosphorylated; stimulated by phorbol ester.
