Summaries for DBN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DBN1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cytoplasmic actin-binding protein thought to play a role in the process of neuronal growth. It is a member of the drebrin family of proteins that are developmentally regulated in the brain. A decrease in the amount of this protein in the brain has been implicated as a possible contributing factor in the pathogenesis of memory disturbance in Alzheimer's disease. At least two alternative splice variants encoding different protein isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cell cortex. Cell junction. Cell projection. Cell projection, growth cone. Note=In the absence of antigen, evenly distributed throughout subcortical regions of the T-cell membrane and cytoplasm. In the presence of antigen, distributes to the immunological synapse forming at the T cell-APC contact area, where it localizes at the peripheral and distal supramolecular activation clusters (SMAC) (PubMed:20215400). Colocalized with DBN1, RUFY3 and F-actin at the transitional domain of the axonal growth cone (By similarity). {ECO:0000250 UniProtKB:Q9QXS6, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20215400}.
