Summaries for CPVL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CPVL Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a carboxypeptidase and bears strong sequence similarity to serine carboxypeptidases. Carboxypeptidases are a large class of proteases that act to cleave a single amino acid from the carboxy termini of proteins or peptides. The exact function of this protein, however, has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]

GeneCards Summary for CPVL Gene

CPVL (Carboxypeptidase, Vitellogenic Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CPVL include Encephalomalacia and Aspiration Pneumonitis. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type carboxypeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCPEP1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CPVL Gene

  • May be involved in the digestion of phagocytosed particles in the lysosome, participation in an inflammatory protease cascade, and trimming of peptides for antigen presentation.
