Summaries for CAPRIN2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CAPRIN2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene may regulate the transport of mRNA. It may play a role in the differentiation of erythroblasts. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

GeneCards Summary for CAPRIN2 Gene

CAPRIN2 (Caprin Family Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CAPRIN2 include Peters Anomaly. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is CAPRIN1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CAPRIN2 Gene

  • Promotes phosphorylation of the Wnt coreceptor LRP6, leading to increased activity of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway (PubMed:18762581). Faciliates constitutive LRP6 phosphorylation by CDK14/CCNY during G2/M stage of the cell cycle, which may potentiate cells for Wnt signaling (PubMed:27821587). May regulate the transport and translation of mRNAs, modulating for instance the expression of proteins involved in synaptic plasticity in neurons (By similarity). Involved in regulation of growth as erythroblasts shift from a highly proliferative state towards their terminal phase of differentiation (PubMed:14593112). May be involved in apoptosis (PubMed:14593112).
