Summaries for CNTFR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CNTFR Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the type 1 cytokine receptor family. The encoded protein is the ligand-specific component of a tripartite receptor for ciliary neurotrophic factor, which plays a critical role in neuronal cell survival, differentiation and gene expression. Binding of ciliary neurotrophic factor to the encoded protein recruits the transmembrane components of the receptor, gp130 and leukemia inhibitory factor receptor, facilitating signal transduction. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with variations in muscle strength, as well as early onset of eating disorders. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CNTFR Gene

CNTFR (Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CNTFR include cold-induced sweating syndrome and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Interleukin-3, 5 and GM-CSF signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is IL11RA.
