Summaries for CCM2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCM2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a scaffold protein that functions in the stress-activated p38 Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling cascade. The protein interacts with SMAD specific E3 ubiquitin protein ligase 1 (also known as SMURF1) via a phosphotyrosine binding domain to promote RhoA degradation. The protein is required for normal cytoskeletal structure, cell-cell interactions, and lumen formation in endothelial cells. Mutations in this gene result in cerebral cavernous malformations. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for CCM2 Gene

CCM2 (CCM2 Scaffolding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCM2 include cerebral cavernous malformations-2 and familial cerebral cavernous malformation 2. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. An important paralog of this gene is CCM2L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCM2 Gene

  • Component of the CCM signaling pathway which is a crucial regulator of heart and vessel formation and integrity. May act through the stabilization of endothelial cell junctions (By similarity). May function as a scaffold protein for MAP2K3-MAP3K3 signaling. Seems to play a major role in the modulation of MAP3K3-dependent p38 activation induced by hyperosmotic shock (By similarity).
