Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SHROOM3 Gene
This gene encodes a PDZ-domain-containing protein that belongs to a family of Shroom-related proteins. This protein may be involved in regulating cell shape in certain tissues. A similar protein in mice is required for proper neurulation. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]
GeneCards Summary for SHROOM3 Gene
SHROOM3 (Shroom Family Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SHROOM3 include Atrial Septal Defect 2 and Kuhnt-Junius Degeneration. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and actin filament binding. An important paralog of this gene is SHROOM2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SHROOM3 Gene
Controls cell shape changes in the neuroepithelium during neural tube closure. Induces apical constriction in epithelial cells by promoting the apical accumulation of F-actin and myosin II, and probably by bundling stress fibers. Induces apicobasal cell elongation by redistributing gamma-tubulin and directing the assembly of robust apicobasal microtubule arrays (By similarity).
