Summaries for ADAMTSL4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAMTSL4 Gene

  • This gene is a member of ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs)-like gene family and encodes a protein with seven thrombospondin type 1 repeats. The thrombospondin type 1 repeat domain is found in many proteins with diverse biological functions including cellular adhesion, angiogenesis, and patterning of the developing nervous system. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

Post-translational modifications for ADAMTSL4 Gene

  • N-glycosylated. Can be O-fucosylated by POFUT2 on a serine or a threonine residue found within the consensus sequence C1-X(2)-(S/T)-C2-G of the TSP type-1 repeat domains where C1 and C2 are the first and second cysteine residue of the repeat, respectively. Fucosylated repeats can then be further glycosylated by the addition of a beta-1,3-glucose residue by the glucosyltransferase, B3GALTL. Fucosylation mediates the efficient secretion of ADAMTS family members. Also can be C-glycosylated with one or two mannose molecules on tryptophan residues within the consensus sequence W-X-X-W of the TPRs. N- and C-glycosylations can also facilitate secretion (By similarity).
  • Glycosylation at Ser107, posLast=181181, posLast=260260, Ser304, Thr319, posLast=490490, and posLast=773773
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Ectopia lentis et pupillae (ECTOLP) [MIM:225200]: An ocular abnormality characterized by displacement of the lenses and the pupils, associated with other ocular anomalies, but without systemic manifestations. The condition is usually bilateral, with the lenses and pupils displaced in opposite directions. Additional signs include enlarged corneal diameter, increased corneal astigmatism, increased anterior chamber depth, thinning and flattening of the iris with loss of crypts, angle malformation caused by enlarged iris processes, persistent pupillary membrane, loss of zonular fibers, tilted disk, and increased axial length. Secondary manifestations include refractive errors, glaucoma, early cataract development, and retinal detachment. Membrane formation on the posterior aspect of the iris has been observed both in histologic sections and on ultrasound biomicroscopy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20702823}.
