Summaries for CBLN4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CBLN4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a family of small secreted proteins containing C1Q domains. Members of this family are involved in regulation of neurexin signalling during synapse development. The mouse homolog of the protein encoded by this gene competes with netrin to bind to the deleted in colorectal cancer receptor. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CBLN4 Gene

CBLN4 (Cerebellin 4 Precursor) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is CBLN2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CBLN4 Gene

  • May be involved in synaptic functions in the CNS. May play a role in CBLN3 export from the endoplasmic reticulum and secretion (By similarity).

    Protein attributes for CBLN4 Gene

    201 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    21808 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homohexamer; disulfide-linked homotrimers. The trimers are assembled via the globular C1q domains. The trimers associate via N-terminal cysteine residues to form disulfide-linked hexamers (By similarity). May form oligomers with CBLN1, CBLN2 and CBLN3 prior to secretion (By similarity). Strongly interacts with DCC in a NTN1-displaceable fashion (By similarity). Weakly binds to NRXN1 and NRXN2 long and short isoforms produced by alternative promoter usage. Interaction with NRXN3 short isoform is hardly detectable; no interaction at all with NRXN3 long isoform (By similarity).
