Summaries for MAPRE2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAPRE2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene shares significant homology to the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) protein-binding EB1 gene family. This protein is a microtubule-associated protein that is necessary for spindle symmetry during mitosis. It is thought to play a role in the tumorigenesis of colorectal cancers and the proliferative control of normal cells. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for MAPRE2 Gene

MAPRE2 (Microtubule-Associated Protein, RP/EB Family, Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAPRE2 include adenomatous polyposis coli. Among its related pathways are PAK Pathway and Remodeling of Adherens Junctions. GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule binding. An important paralog of this gene is MAPRE3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAPRE2 Gene

  • May be involved in microtubule polymerization, and spindle function by stabilizing microtubules and anchoring them at centrosomes. May play a role in cell migration (By similarity).
