Summaries for NES Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NES Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the intermediate filament protein family and is expressed primarily in nerve cells. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for NES Gene

NES (Nestin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NES include central nervous system germ cell tumor and optic nerve glioma. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. GO annotations related to this gene include structural molecule activity and intermediate filament binding. An important paralog of this gene is SYNM.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NES Gene

  • Required for brain and eye development. Promotes the disassembly of phosphorylated vimentin intermediate filaments (IF) during mitosis and may play a role in the trafficking and distribution of IF proteins and other cellular factors to daughter cells during progenitor cell division. Required for survival, renewal and mitogen-stimulated proliferation of neural progenitor cells (By similarity).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Forms homodimers and homotetramers in vitro. In mixtures with other intermediate filament proteins such as vimentin and alpha-internexin, tis protein preferentially forms heterodimers which can assemble to form intermediate filaments if nestin does not exceed 25%. Interacts with FHOD3 (By similarity).
