Entrez Gene Summary for COL4A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the six subunits of type IV collagen, the major structural component of basement membranes. The C-terminal portion of the protein, known as canstatin, is an inhibitor of angiogenesis and tumor growth. Like the other members of the type IV collagen gene family, this gene is organized in a head-to-head conformation with another type IV collagen gene so that each gene pair shares a common promoter.

GeneCards Summary for COL4A2 Gene

COL4A2 (Collagen, Type IV, Alpha 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with COL4A2 include porencephaly 2 and familial porencephaly. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Signaling by FGFR. GO annotations related to this gene include extracellular matrix structural constituent. An important paralog of this gene is COL3A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for COL4A2 Gene

  • Type IV collagen is the major structural component of glomerular basement membranes (GBM), forming a chicken-wire meshwork together with laminins, proteoglycans and entactin/nidogen

  • Canstatin, a cleavage product corresponding to the collagen alpha 2(IV) NC1 domain, possesses both anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor cell activity. It inhibits proliferation and migration of endothelial cells, reduces mitochondrial membrane potential, and induces apoptosis. Specifically induces Fas-dependent apoptosis and activates procaspase-8 and -9 activity. Ligand for alphavbeta3 and alphavbeta5 integrins

Post-translational modifications for COL4A2 Gene

  • Prolines at the third position of the tripeptide repeating unit (G-X-Y) are hydroxylated in some or all of the chains
  • Proteolytic processing produces the C-terminal NC1 peptide, canstatin
  • The trimeric structure of the NC1 domains is stabilized by covalent bonds between Lys and Met residues.
  • Type IV collagens contain numerous cysteine residues which are involved in inter- and intramolecular disulfide bonding. 12 of these, located in the NC1 domain, are conserved in all known type IV collagens
  • Glycosylation at Ser111, Asn138, Thr1361, Thr1403, and Ser1446
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

CO4A2_HUMAN :
  • P08572
Domain:
  • Alpha chains of type IV collagen have a non-collagenous domain (NC1) at their C-terminus, frequent interruptions of the G-X-Y repeats in the long central triple-helical domain (which may cause flexibility in the triple helix), and a short N-terminal triple-helical 7S domain
  • Contains 1 collagen IV NC1 (C-terminal non-collagenous) domain.
Family:
  • Belongs to the type IV collagen family.

  • Porencephaly 2 (POREN2) [MIM:614483]: A neurologic disorder characterized by a fluid-filled cysts or cavities within the cerebral hemispheres. Affected individuals typically have hemiplegia, seizures, and intellectual disability. Porencephaly type 2, or schizencephalic porencephaly, is usually symmetric and represents a primary defect in the development of the cerebral ventricles. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22209246}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) [MIM:614519]: A pathological condition characterized by bleeding into one or both cerebral hemispheres including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex. It is often associated with hypertension and craniocerebral trauma. Intracerebral bleeding is a common cause of stroke. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22209247}.
