Summaries for PKD1L2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PKD1L2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the polycystin protein family. The encoded protein contains 11 transmembrane domains, a latrophilin/CL-1-like GPCR proteolytic site (GPS) domain, and a polycystin-1, lipoxygenase, alpha-toxin (PLAT) domain. This protein may function as a component of cation channel pores. This gene appears to be a polymorphic pseudogene in humans, where some individuals contain a non-functional allele. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2014]
