Summaries for PFN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PFN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the profilin family of small actin-binding proteins. The encoded protein plays an important role in actin dynamics by regulating actin polymerization in response to extracellular signals. Deletion of this gene is associated with Miller-Dieker syndrome, and the encoded protein may also play a role in Huntington disease. Multiple pseudogenes of this gene are located on chromosome 1. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

GeneCards Summary for PFN1 Gene

PFN1 (Profilin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PFN1 include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 18 and pfn1-related amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Among its related pathways are Platelet activation, signaling and aggregation and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and actin binding. An important paralog of this gene is PFN3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PFN1 Gene

  • Binds to actin and affects the structure of the cytoskeleton. At high concentrations, profilin prevents the polymerization of actin, whereas it enhances it at low concentrations. By binding to PIP2, it inhibits the formation of IP3 and DG. Inhibits androgen receptor (AR) and HTT aggregation and binding of G-actin is essential for its inhibition of AR.

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 18 (ALS18) [MIM:614808]: A neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper motor neurons in the brain and lower motor neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord, resulting in fatal paralysis. Sensory abnormalities are absent. The pathologic hallmarks of the disease include pallor of the corticospinal tract due to loss of motor neurons, presence of ubiquitin-positive inclusions within surviving motor neurons, and deposition of pathologic aggregates. The etiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is likely to be multifactorial, involving both genetic and environmental factors. The disease is inherited in 5-10% of the cases. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22801503}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
