Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SDPR Gene
This gene encodes a calcium-independent phospholipid-binding protein whose expression increases in serum-starved cells. This protein is a substrate for protein kinase C (PKC) phosphorylation and recruits polymerase I and transcript release factor (PTRF) to caveolae. Removal of this protein causes caveolae loss and its over-expression results in caveolae deformation and membrane tubulation.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SDPR Gene
SDPR (Serum Deprivation Response) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding and phosphatidylserine binding. An important paralog of this gene is PTRF.
