Summaries for EPYC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EPYC Gene

  • Dermatan sulfate proteoglycan 3 is a member of the small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycan family. This gene is composed of seven exons. It regulates fibrillogenesis by interacting with collagen fibrils and other extracellular matrix proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for EPYC Gene

EPYC (Epiphycan) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EPYC include posterior amorphous corneal dystrophy and cornea plana. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Integrin Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include glycosaminoglycan binding. An important paralog of this gene is OGN.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EPYC Gene

  • May have a role in bone formation and also in establishing the ordered structure of cartilage through matrix organization.
