Summaries for GPR143 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GPR143 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that binds to heterotrimeric G proteins and is targeted to melanosomes in pigment cells. This protein is thought to be involved in intracellular signal transduction mechanisms. Mutations in this gene cause ocular albinism type 1, also referred to as Nettleship-Falls type ocular albinism, a severe visual disorder. A related pseudogene has been identified on chromosome Y. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]

GeneCards Summary for GPR143 Gene

GPR143 (G Protein-Coupled Receptor 143) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GPR143 include nystagmus 6, congenital, x-linked and ocular albinism, type i, nettleship-falls type. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and tyrosine binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GPR143 Gene

  • Receptor for tyrosine, L-DOPA and dopamine. After binding to L-DOPA, stimulates Ca(2+) influx into the cytoplasm, increases secretion of the neurotrophic factor SERPINF1 and relocalizes beta arrestin at the plasma membrane; this ligand-dependent signaling occurs through a G(q)-mediated pathway in melanocytic cells. Its activity is mediated by G proteins which activate the phosphoinositide signaling pathway. Plays also a role as an intracellular G protein-coupled receptor involved in melanosome biogenesis, organization and transport.

  • Nystagmus congenital X-linked 6 (NYS6) [MIM:300814]: A condition defined as conjugated, spontaneous and involuntary ocular oscillations that appear at birth or during the first three months of life. Other associated features may include mildly decreased visual acuity, strabismus, astigmatism, and occasionally head nodding. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17516023}.
