Entrez Gene Summary for COL4A3BP Gene

  • This gene encodes a kinase that specifically phosphorylates the N-terminal region of the non-collagenous domain of the alpha 3 chain of type IV collagen, known as the Goodpasture antigen. Goodpasture disease is the result of an autoimmune response directed at this antigen. One isoform of this protein is also involved in ceramide intracellular transport. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for COL4A3BP Gene

COL4A3BP (Collagen, Type IV, Alpha 3 (Goodpasture Antigen) Binding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with COL4A3BP include alport syndrome and goodpasture syndrome.

Post-translational modifications for COL4A3BP Gene

  • Phosphorylation on Ser-132 decreases the affinity toward phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate at Golgi membranes and reduces ceramide transfer activity. Inactivated by hyperphosphorylation of serine residues by CSNK1G2/CK1 that triggers dissociation from the Golgi complex, thus down-regulating ER-to-Golgi transport of ceramide and sphingomyelin synthesis.
