Summaries for NEFM Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NEFM Gene

  • Neurofilaments are type IV intermediate filament heteropolymers composed of light, medium, and heavy chains. Neurofilaments comprise the axoskeleton and functionally maintain neuronal caliber. They may also play a role in intracellular transport to axons and dendrites. This gene encodes the medium neurofilament protein. This protein is commonly used as a biomarker of neuronal damage. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NEFM Gene

NEFM (Neurofilament, Medium Polypeptide) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NEFM include pineal parenchymal tumor of intermediate differentiation and wallerian degeneration. Among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). GO annotations related to this gene include structural molecule activity and structural constituent of cytoskeleton. An important paralog of this gene is LMNB2.

Post-translational modifications for NEFM Gene

  • Phosphorylated in the head and rod regions by the PKC kinase PKN1, leading to the inhibition of polymerization
  • Phosphorylation seems to play a major role in the functioning of the larger neurofilament polypeptides (NF-M and NF-H), the levels of phosphorylation being altered developmentally and coincidentally with a change in the neurofilament function
  • There are a number of repeats of the tripeptide K-S-P, NFM is phosphorylated on a number of the serines in this motif. It is thought that phosphorylation of NFM results in the formation of interfilament cross bridges that are important in the maintenance of axonal caliber
  • Ubiquitination at Lys 118, Lys 263, Lys 271, Lys 451, Lys 871, and Lys 875
  • Glycosylation at Thr 47 and Thr 431
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
