Summaries for NRG4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NRG4 Gene

  • The neuregulins, including NRG4, activate type-1 growth factor receptors (see EGFR; MIM 131550) to initiating cell-to-cell signaling through tyrosine phosphorylation (Harari et al., 1999 [PubMed 10348342]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NRG4 Gene

NRG4 (Neuregulin 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PI-3K cascade and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NRG4 Gene

  • Low affinity ligand for the ERBB4 tyrosine kinase receptor. Concomitantly recruits ERBB1 and ERBB2 coreceptors, resulting in ligand-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation and activation of the ERBB receptors. Does not bind to the ERBB1, ERBB2 and ERBB3 receptors (By similarity).

Q8WWG1

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

NRG4_HUMAN :
  • Q8WWG1
Domain:
  • The cytoplasmic domain may be involved in the regulation of trafficking and proteolytic processing. Regulation of the proteolytic processing involves initial intracellular domain dimerization (By similarity).
  • ERBB receptor binding is elicited entirely by the EGF-like domain.
  • Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
Family:
  • Belongs to the neuregulin family.
