Summaries for RDX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RDX Gene

  • Radixin is a cytoskeletal protein that may be important in linking actin to the plasma membrane. It is highly similar in sequence to both ezrin and moesin. The radixin gene has been localized by fluorescence in situ hybridization to 11q23. A truncated version representing a pseudogene (RDXP2) was assigned to Xp21.3. Another pseudogene that seemed to lack introns (RDXP1) was mapped to 11p by Southern and PCR analyses. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]

  • P35241
  • The N-terminal domain interacts with the C-terminal domain of LAYN. An interdomain interaction between its N-terminal and C-terminal domains inhibits its ability to bind LAYN. In the presence of acidic phospholipids, the interdomain interaction is inhibited and this enhances binding to LAYN (By similarity).
  • Contains 1 FERM domain.
