Summaries for LYNX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LYNX1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Ly-6/neurotoxin gene family, a group of lymphocyte antigens that attach to the cell surface by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor and have a unique structure showing conserved 8-10 cysteine residues with a characteristic spacing pattern. Functional analysis indicates that this protein is not a ligand or neurotransmitter but has the capacity to enhance nicotinic acetylcholine receptor function in the presence of acetylcholine. This gene may also play a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis vulgaris. Alternatively spliced variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LYNX1 Gene

LYNX1 (Ly6/Neurotoxin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LYNX1 include Psoriasis.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LYNX1 Gene

  • Acts in different tissues through interaction to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). In brain, isoform 2 modulates functional properties of nAChRs to prevent excessive excitation, and hence neurodegeneration. Enhances desensitization by increasing both the rate and extent of desensitization of alpha(4)beta(2) nAChRs and slowing recovery from desensitization. Promotes large amplitude ACh-evoked currents through alpha(4)beta(2) nAChRs (By similarity). Prevents plasticity in the primary visual cortex late in life (By similarity). In keratinocytes, isoform 3 delays differentiation and prevents apoptosis.

Tissue specificity: Isoform 3 is expressed at highest levels in cervix and esophagus, followed by adult and fetal skin. Expressed at lower levels in brain, lung, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, uterus, and thymus. Not detected in spleen nor bone marrow. In the epidermis, predominantly produced by keratinocytes of the suprabasal epidermal compartment (at protein level). In attached gingiva, produced at highest levels by basal cells located in the lowermost epithelial layers (at protein level). Up-regulated 3-fold in psoriatic lesional skin.
