Aliases for DNM3 Gene
External Ids for DNM3 Gene
This gene encodes a member of a family of guanosine triphosphate (GTP)-binding proteins that associate with microtubules and are involved in vesicular transport. The encoded protein functions in the development of megakaryocytes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
GeneCards Summary for DNM3 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNM3 Gene
Microtubule-associated force-producing protein involved in producing microtubule bundles and able to bind and hydrolyze GTP. Most probably involved in vesicular trafficking processes, in particular endocytosis (By similarity).
Dynamin is a GTPase that is involved in endocytosis. GTPases are a group of enzymes that catalyze hydrolysis of the gamma phosphate bond in guanine triphosphate (GTP) to form guanine diphosphate (GDP). Mg2+ is essential for catalytic activity. GTPases are often coupled to G proteins and have essential roles in signal transduction, protein synthesis and translocation, control of cell growth and differentiation and vesicular transport regulation.
