Summaries for CLDN15 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLDN15 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the claudin family. Claudins are integral membrane proteins and components of tight junction strands. Tight junction strands serve as a physical barrier to prevent solutes and water from passing freely through the paracellular space between epithelial or endothelial cell sheets, and also play critical roles in maintaining cell polarity and signal transductions. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CLDN15 Gene

CLDN15 (Claudin 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CLDN15 include malignant peritoneal mesothelioma. Among its related pathways are Integrin Pathway and Cell junction organization. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and structural molecule activity. An important paralog of this gene is CLDN18.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CLDN15 Gene

  • Claudins function as major constituents of the tight junction complexes that regulate the permeability of epithelia. While some claudin family members function as impermeable barriers, others mediate the permeability to ions and small molecules. Often, several claudin family members are coexpressed and interact with each other, and this determines the overall permeability. CLDN15 forms tight junctions that mediate the paracellular transport of small monovalent cations along a concentration gradient, due to selective permeability for Na(+), Li(+) and K(+) ions, but selects against Cl(-) ions. Plays an important role in paracellular Na(+) transport in the intestine and in Na(+) homeostasis. Required for normal Na(+)-dependent intestinal nutrient uptake.
