Summaries for AMPH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AMPH Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein associated with the cytoplasmic surface of synaptic vesicles. A subset of patients with stiff-man syndrome who were also affected by breast cancer are positive for autoantibodies against this protein. Alternate splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. Additional splice variants have been described, but their full length sequences have not been determined. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 11.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for AMPH Gene

AMPH (Amphiphysin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AMPH include Stiff-Person Syndrome and Limbic Encephalitis. Among its related pathways are Internalization of ErbB1 and Vesicle-mediated transport. GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is BIN1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AMPH Gene

  • May participate in mechanisms of regulated exocytosis in synapses and certain endocrine cell types. May control the properties of the membrane associated cytoskeleton.
