Summaries for PPEF1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PPEF1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the serine/threonine protein phosphatase with EF-hand motif family. The protein contains a protein phosphatase catalytic domain, and at least two EF-hand calcium-binding motifs in its C terminus. Although its substrate(s) is unknown, the encoded protein has been suggested to play a role in specific sensory neuron function and/or development. This gene shares high sequence similarity with the Drosophila retinal degeneration C (rdgC) gene. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants, each encoding a distinct isoform, have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PPEF1 Gene

PPEF1 (Protein Phosphatase, EF-Hand Calcium Binding Domain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PPEF1 include x-linked juvenile retinoschisis and juvenile retinoschisis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein serine/threonine phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PPEF2.
