Summaries for EMILIN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EMILIN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes an extracellular matrix glycoprotein that is characterized by an N-terminal microfibril interface domain, a coiled-coiled alpha-helical domain, a collagenous domain and a C-terminal globular C1q domain. The encoded protein associates with elastic fibers at the interface between elastin and microfibrils and may play a role in the development of elastic tissues including large blood vessels, dermis, heart and lung.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homotrimer associated through a moderately stable interaction of the C-terminal globular C1q domains, allowing the nucleation of the triple helix and then a further quaternary assembly to higher-order polymers via intermolecular disulfide bonds. Interacts with EMILIN2.
    • Its deposition precedes the appearance of elastin and is simultaneous with that of fibrillin 1.
