Summaries for NPTX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NPTX1 Gene

  • NPTX1 is a member of the neuronal pentraxin gene family. Neuronal pentraxin 1 is similar to the rat NP1 gene which encodes a binding protein for the snake venom toxin taipoxin. Human NPTX1 mRNA is exclusively localized to the nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NPTX1 Gene

NPTX1 (Neuronal Pentraxin I) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPTX1 include wallerian degeneration and prostate cancer. An important paralog of this gene is PTX3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPTX1 Gene

  • May be involved in mediating uptake of synaptic material during synapse remodeling or in mediating the synaptic clustering of AMPA glutamate receptors at a subset of excitatory synapses.
