SEMA4D (Semaphorin 4D) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SEMA4D include Hemorrhagic Fever With Renal Syndrome and Osteonecrosis Of The Jaw. Among its related pathways are Development Slit-Robo signaling and Semaphorin interactions. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and transmembrane signaling receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SEMA4C.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SEMA4D Gene
Cell surface receptor for PLXN1B and PLXNB2 that plays an important role in cell-cell signaling. Promotes reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and plays a role in axonal growth cone guidance in the developing central nervous system. Regulates dendrite and axon branching and morphogenesis. Promotes the migration of cerebellar granule cells and of endothelial cells. Plays a role in the immune system; induces B-cells to aggregate and improves their viability (in vitro). Promotes signaling via SRC and PTK2B/PYK2, which then mediates activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and of the AKT1 signaling cascade. Interaction with PLXNB1 mediates activation of RHOA.
