Summaries for KEL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KEL Gene

  • This gene encodes a type II transmembrane glycoprotein that is the highly polymorphic Kell blood group antigen. The Kell glycoprotein links via a single disulfide bond to the XK membrane protein that carries the Kx antigen. The encoded protein contains sequence and structural similarity to members of the neprilysin (M13) family of zinc endopeptidases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for KEL Gene

KEL (Kell Blood Group, Metallo-Endopeptidase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KEL include lingual-facial-buccal dyskinesia and choreoacanthocytosis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include metalloendopeptidase activity and metallopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MMEL1.
