Previous GeneCards Identifiers for KLHL20 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the kelch family of proteins, which is characterized by a 44-56 amino acid repeat motif. The kelch motif appears in many different polypeptide contexts and contains multiple potential protein-protein contact sites. Members of this family are present both throughout the cell and extracellularly, with diverse activities. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for KLHL20 Gene
KLHL20 (Kelch Like Family Member 20) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune System and E-cadherin signaling in the nascent adherens junction. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and interferon-gamma binding. An important paralog of this gene is KLHL17.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL20 Gene
Substrate-specific adapter of a BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex involved in interferon response and anterograde Golgi to endosome transport. The BCR(KLHL20) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex mediates the ubiquitination of DAPK1, leading to its degradation by the proteasome, thereby acting as a negative regulator of apoptosis (PubMed:20389280). The BCR(KLHL20) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex also specifically mediates Lys-33-linked ubiquitination (PubMed:24768539). Involved in anterograde Golgi to endosome transport by mediating Lys-33-linked ubiquitination of CORO7, promoting interaction between CORO7 and EPS15, thereby facilitating actin polymerization and post-Golgi trafficking (PubMed:24768539). Also acts as a regulator of endothelial migration during angiogenesis by controlling the activation of Rho GTPases. The BCR(KLHL20) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex acts as a regulator of neurite outgrowth by mediating ubiquitination and degradation of PDZ-RhoGEF/ARHGEF11 (PubMed:21670212). In case of tumor, the BCR(KLHL20) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex is involved in tumor hypoxia: following hypoxia, the BCR(KLHL20)complex mediates ubiquitination and degradation of PML, potentiating HIF-1 signaling and cancer progression (PubMed:21840486).
