Summaries for GUCY2C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GUCY2C Gene

  • This gene encodes a transmembrane protein that functions as a receptor for endogenous peptides guanylin and uroguanylin, and the heat-stable E. coli enterotoxin. The encoded protein activates the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator. Mutations in this gene are associated with familial diarrhea (autosomal dominant) and meconium ileus (autosomal recessive). [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2016]

GeneCards Summary for GUCY2C Gene

GUCY2C (Guanylate Cyclase 2C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GUCY2C include Meconium Ileus and Diarrhea 6. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and HIV Life Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GUCY2F.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GUCY2C Gene

  • Receptor for the E.coli heat-stable enterotoxin (E.coli enterotoxin markedly stimulates the accumulation of cGMP in mammalian cells expressing GC-C). Also activated by the endogenous peptides guanylin and uroguanylin.
