Summaries for SYNM Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SYNM Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an intermediate filament (IF) family member. IF proteins are cytoskeletal proteins that confer resistance to mechanical stress and are encoded by a dispersed multigene family. This protein has been found to form a linkage between desmin, which is a subunit of the IF network, and the extracellular matrix, and provides an important structural support in muscle. Two alternatively spliced variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SYNM Gene

SYNM (Synemin, Intermediate Filament Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SYNM include pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma and olfactory neuroblastoma. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeleton remodeling Neurofilaments. GO annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of cytoskeleton and vinculin binding. An important paralog of this gene is NES.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SYNM Gene

  • Type-VI intermediate filament (IF) which plays an important cytoskeletal role within the muscle cell cytoskeleton. It forms heteropolymeric IFs with desmin and/or vimentin, and via its interaction with cytoskeletal proteins alpha-dystrobrevin, dystrophin, talin-1, utrophin and vinculin, is able to link these heteropolymeric IFs to adherens-type junctions, such as to the costameres, neuromuscular junctions, and myotendinous junctions within striated muscle cells.

O15061-SYNEM_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: Isoform 2 is strongly detected in adult heart, fetal skeletal muscles and fetal heart. Isoform 1 is weakly detected in fetal heart and also in fetal skeletal muscle. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are detected in adult bladder (at protein level). The mRNA is predominantly expressed in heart and muscle with some expression in brain which may be due to tissue-specific isoforms.
