Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PREPL Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the prolyl oligopeptidase subfamily of serine peptidases. Mutations in this gene have been associated with hypotonia-cystinuria syndrome, also known as the 2p21 deletion syndrome. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding either the same or different isoforms have been described for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
GeneCards Summary for PREPL Gene
PREPL (Prolyl Endopeptidase-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PREPL include Myasthenic Syndrome, Congenital, 22 and Hypotonia-Homocystinuria Syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase activity and serine-type exopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PREP.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PREPL Gene
Probable serine peptidase whose precise substrate specificity remains unclear. Does not cleave peptides after a arginine or lysine residue. May play a role in the regulation of synaptic vesiscle exocytosis (PubMed:24610330).
