Summaries for SDC1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SDC1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a transmembrane (type I) heparan sulfate proteoglycan and is a member of the syndecan proteoglycan family. The syndecans mediate cell binding, cell signaling, and cytoskeletal organization and syndecan receptors are required for internalization of the HIV-1 tat protein. The syndecan-1 protein functions as an integral membrane protein and participates in cell proliferation, cell migration and cell-matrix interactions via its receptor for extracellular matrix proteins. Altered syndecan-1 expression has been detected in several different tumor types. While several transcript variants may exist for this gene, the full-length natures of only two have been described to date. These two represent the major variants of this gene and encode the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SDC1 Gene

SDC1 (Syndecan 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SDC1 include monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance and breast carcinoma in situ. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Proteoglycans in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include protein C-terminus binding and glycoprotein binding. An important paralog of this gene is SDC4.
