Summaries for COL4A3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for COL4A3 Gene

  • Type IV collagen, the major structural component of basement membranes, is a multimeric protein composed of 3 alpha subunits. These subunits are encoded by 6 different genes, alpha 1 through alpha 6, each of which can form a triple helix structure with 2 other subunits to form type IV collagen. This gene encodes alpha 3. In the Goodpasture syndrome, autoantibodies bind to the collagen molecules in the basement membranes of alveoli and glomeruli. The epitopes that elicit these autoantibodies are localized largely to the non-collagenous C-terminal domain of the protein. A specific kinase phosphorylates amino acids in this same C-terminal region and the expression of this kinase is upregulated during pathogenesis. This gene is also linked to an autosomal recessive form of Alport syndrome. The mutations contributing to this syndrome are also located within the exons that encode this C-terminal region. 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 COL4A3 Gene

COL4A3 (Collagen Type IV Alpha 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with COL4A3 include alport syndrome, autosomal dominant and alport syndrome, autosomal recessive. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include structural molecule activity and extracellular matrix structural constituent. An important paralog of this gene is COL3A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for COL4A3 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.

  • Tumstatin, a cleavage fragment corresponding to the collagen alpha 3(IV) NC1 domain, possesses both anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor cell activity; these two anti-tumor properties may be regulated via RGD-independent ITGB3-mediated mechanisms.

    Protein attributes for COL4A3 Gene

    Size:
    1670 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    161813 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • There are six type IV collagen isoforms, alpha 1(IV)-alpha 6(IV), each of which can form a triple helix structure with 2 other chains to generate type IV collagen network. The alpha 3(IV) chain forms a triple helical protomer with alpha 4(IV) and alpha 5(IV); this triple helical structure dimerizes through NC1-NC1 domain interactions such that the alpha 3(IV), alpha 4(IV) and alpha 5(IV) chains of one protomer connect with the alpha 5(IV), alpha 4(IV) and alpha 3(IV) chains of the opposite promoter, respectively. Interacts with COL4A3BP AND ITGB3. Associates with LAMB2 at the neuromuscular junction and in GBM (By similarity).
    Miscellaneous:
    • The epitopes recognized by the Goodpasture autoantibodies are sequestered within the NC1 hexamer of the type IV collagen network.

Q01955-CO4A3_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: Alpha 3 and alpha 4 type IV collagens are colocalized and present in kidney, eye, basement membranes of lens capsule, cochlea, lung, skeletal muscle, aorta, synaptic fibers, fetal kidney and fetal lung. PubMed:8083201 reports similar levels of expression of alpha 3 and alpha 4 type IV collagens in kidney, but PubMed:7523402 reports that in kidney levels of alpha 3 type IV collagen are significantly lower than those of alpha 4 type IV collagen. According to PubMed:8083201, alpha 3 type IV collagen is not detected in heart, brain, placenta, liver, pancreas, extrasynaptic muscle fibers, endoneurial and perineurial nerves, fetal brain, fetal heart and fetal liver. According to PubMed:7523402, alpha 3 type IV collagen is strongly expressed in pancreas, neuroretina and calvaria and not expressed in adrenal, ileum and skin. Isoform 1 and isoform 3 are strongly expressed in kidney, lung, suprarenal capsule, muscle and spleen, in each of these tissues isoform 1 is more abundant than isoform 3. Isoform 1 and isoform 3 are expressed at low levels in artery, fat, pericardium and peripherical nerve, but not in placenta, mesangium, skin, pleura and cultured umbilical endothelial cells.
