Summaries for BCAN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BCAN Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the lectican family of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans that is specifically expressed in the central nervous system. This protein is developmentally regulated and may function in the formation of the brain extracellular matrix. This protein is highly expressed in gliomas and may promote the growth and cell motility of brain tumor cells. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BCAN Gene

BCAN (Brevican) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Defective B4GALT7 causes EDS, progeroid type and Diseases associated with O-glycosylation of proteins. GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and hyaluronic acid binding. An important paralog of this gene is ACAN.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BCAN Gene

  • May play a role in the terminally differentiating and the adult nervous system during postnatal development. Could stabilize interactions between hyaluronan (HA) and brain proteoglycans.
