Summaries for TECTB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TECTB Gene

  • This gene encodes a non-collagenous glycoprotein component of the tectorial membrane, which covers the auditory hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear. A similar protein in mouse functions in low-frequency hearing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for TECTB Gene

TECTB (Tectorin Beta) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include extracellular matrix structural constituent. An important paralog of this gene is ZPLD1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TECTB Gene

  • One of the major non-collagenous components of the tectorial membrane (By similarity). The tectorial membrane is an extracellular matrix of the inner ear that covers the neuroepithelium of the cochlea and contacts the stereocilia bundles of specialized sensory hair cells. Sound induces movement of these hair cells relative to the tectorial membrane, deflects the stereocilia and leads to fluctuations in hair-cell membrane potential, transducing sound into electrical signals.

Post-translational modifications for TECTB Gene

  • The presence of a hydrophobic C-terminus preceded by a potential cleavage site strongly suggests that tectorins are synthesized as glycosylphosphatidylinositol-linked, membrane-bound precursors. Tectorins are targeted to the apical surface of the inner ear epithelia by the lipid and proteolytically released into the extracellular compartment
  • Glycosylation at Asn80, Asn104, Asn116, and Asn145
