Summaries for LSAMP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LSAMP Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the immunoglobulin LAMP, OBCAM and neurotrimin (IgLON) family of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate a neuronal surface glycoprotein. This protein may act as a selective homophilic adhesion molecule during axon guidance and neuronal growth in the developing limbic system. The encoded protein may also function as a tumor suppressor and may play a role in neuropsychiatric disorders. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, at least one of which encodes a preproprotein that is proteolytically processed. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]

GeneCards Summary for LSAMP Gene

LSAMP (Limbic System-Associated Membrane Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Post-translational modification- synthesis of GPI-anchored proteins. An important paralog of this gene is NTM.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LSAMP Gene

  • Mediates selective neuronal growth and axon targeting. Contributes to the guidance of developing axons and remodeling of mature circuits in the limbic system. Essential for normal growth of the hyppocampal mossy fiber projection (By similarity).
