Summaries for VPREB1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VPREB1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily and is expressed selectively at the early stages of B cell development, namely, in proB and early preB cells. This gene encodes the iota polypeptide chain that is associated with the Ig-mu chain to form a molecular complex which is expressed on the surface of pre-B cells. The complex is thought to regulate Ig gene rearrangements in the early steps of B-cell differentiation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

GeneCards Summary for VPREB1 Gene

VPREB1 (V-Set Pre-B Cell Surrogate Light Chain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with VPREB1 include Conidiobolomycosis and Mu Chain Disease. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Cell surface interactions at the vascular wall. An important paralog of this gene is IGLV5-37.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for VPREB1 Gene

  • Associates with the Ig-mu chain to form a molecular complex that is expressed on the surface of pre-B-cells. This complex presumably regulates Ig gene rearrangements in the early steps of B-cell differentiation.
