Summaries for VANGL2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VANGL2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein involved in the regulation of planar cell polarity, especially in the stereociliary bundles of the cochlea. The encoded protein transmits directional signals to individual cells or groups of cells in epithelial sheets. This protein is also involved in the development of the neural plate. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for VANGL2 Gene

VANGL2 (VANGL Planar Cell Polarity Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VANGL2 include Neural Tube Defects and Vangl2-Related Neural Tube Defect. Among its related pathways are Wnt Signaling Pathways: beta-Catenin-dependent Wnt Signaling and Wnt Signaling Pathway and Pluripotency. An important paralog of this gene is VANGL1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VANGL2 Gene

  • Involved in the control of early morphogenesis and patterning of both axial midline structures and the development of neural plate. Plays a role in the regulation of planar cell polarity, particularly in the orientation of stereociliary bundles in the cochlea. Required for polarization and movement of myocardializing cells in the outflow tract and seems to act via RHOA signaling to regulate this process. Required for cell surface localization of FZD3 and FZD6 in the inner ear (By similarity).

  • Neural tube defects (NTD) [MIM:182940]: Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy. Failure of neural tube closure can occur at any level of the embryonic axis. Common NTD forms include anencephaly, myelomeningocele and spina bifida, which result from the failure of fusion in the cranial and spinal region of the neural tube. NTDs have a multifactorial etiology encompassing both genetic and environmental components. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20558380}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
