Summaries for COTL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for COTL1 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the numerous actin-binding proteins which regulate the actin cytoskeleton. This protein binds F-actin, and also interacts with 5-lipoxygenase, which is the first committed enzyme in leukotriene biosynthesis. Although this gene has been reported to map to chromosome 17 in the Smith-Magenis syndrome region, the best alignments for this gene are to chromosome 16. The Smith-Magenis syndrome region is the site of two related pseudogenes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for COTL1 Gene

COTL1 (Coactosin-Like F-Actin Binding Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with COTL1 include smith-magenis syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and enzyme binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for COTL1 Gene

  • Binds to F-actin in a calcium-independent manner. Has no direct effect on actin depolymerization. Acts as a chaperone for ALOX5 (5LO), influencing both its stability and activity in leukotrienes synthesis.
