This gene encodes a member of the serine proteinase inhibitor (serpin) superfamily. This member is the principal inhibitor of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and urokinase (uPA), and hence is an inhibitor of fibrinolysis. Defects in this gene are the cause of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 deficiency (PAI-1 deficiency), and high concentrations of the gene product are associated with thrombophilia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SERPINE1 Gene
SERPINE1 (Serpin Family E Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SERPINE1 include Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 Deficiency and Hepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease. Among its related pathways are Transcriptional activity of SMAD2/SMAD3-SMAD4 heterotrimer and Integrin Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and protease binding. An important paralog of this gene is SERPINE2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SERPINE1 Gene
Serine protease inhibitor. This inhibitor acts as bait for tissue plasminogen activator, urokinase, protein C and matriptase-3/TMPRSS7. Its rapid interaction with PLAT may function as a major control point in the regulation of fibrinolysis.
