Summaries for OMD Gene

GeneCards Summary for OMD Gene

OMD (Osteomodulin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OMD include Occult Macular Dystrophy and Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Keratan sulfate/keratin metabolism and Chondroitin sulfate/dermatan sulfate metabolism. An important paralog of this gene is PRELP.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OMD Gene

  • May be implicated in biomineralization processes. Has a function in binding of osteoblasts via the alpha(V)beta(3)-integrin (By similarity).
