Summaries for KLHL17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KLHL17 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is expressed in neurons of most regions of the brain. It contains an N-terminal BTB domain, which mediates dimerization of the protein, and a C-terminal Kelch domain, which mediates binding to F-actin. This protein may play a key role in the regulation of actin-based neuronal function. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]

GeneCards Summary for KLHL17 Gene

KLHL17 (Kelch-Like Family Member 17) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include actin filament binding and POZ domain binding. An important paralog of this gene is KLHL10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL17 Gene

  • Substrate-recognition component of some cullin-RING-based BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex. The BCR(KLHL17) mediates the ubiquitination and subsequenct degradation of GLUR6. May play a role in the actin-based neuronal function (By similarity).

    642 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    69874 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with F-actin; the interaction disruptes the F-actin structures and leads to marked changes of neuronal morphology. Component of a complex, composed of PDZK1, SYNGAP1, KLHL17 and NMDA receptors. Interacts directly with PDZK1 (via PDZ1 domain); the interaction is important for integrity of actin cytoskeleton structures in neurons. Interacts with DLG4 and SYNGAP1. Interacts (via kelch repeats) with GRIK2 (via C-terminus); the interaction targets GRIK2 for degradation via ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Interacts with GRIK1. Interacts with (via BTB domain) CUL3; the interaction regulates surface GRIK2 expression (By similarity).
