Summaries for SEPT5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SEPT5 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the septin gene family of nucleotide binding proteins, originally described in yeast as cell division cycle regulatory proteins. Septins are highly conserved in yeast, Drosophila, and mouse and appear to regulate cytoskeletal organization. Disruption of septin function disturbs cytokinesis and results in large multinucleate or polyploid cells. This gene is mapped to 22q11, the region frequently deleted in DiGeorge and velocardiofacial syndromes. A translocation involving the MLL gene and this gene has also been reported in patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. The presence of a non-consensus polyA signal (AACAAT) in this gene also results in read-through transcription into the downstream neighboring gene (GP1BB; platelet glycoprotein Ib), whereby larger, non-coding transcripts are produced.

    Molecular mass:
    42777 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Septins polymerize into heterooligomeric protein complexes that form filaments, and can associate with cellular membranes, actin filaments and microtubules. GTPase activity is required for filament formation (By similarity). Interacts with SEPT2 and SEPT5. In platelets, associated with a complex containing STX4. Interacts with PARK2. This interaction leads to SEPT5 ubiquitination and degradation (By similarity).
    • In a heterologous system, SEPT5 overexpression has been shown to exert dopamine-dependent neurotoxicity. As wild-type PARK2, but not familial-linked PARK2 mutants, ubiquitinates mouse SEPT5 and promotes its degradation, it has been sugested that a deficiency in SEPT5 degradation may contribute to the development of early onset Parkinson disease 2 (PARK2).
