This gene encodes an antagonist of bone morphogenetic protein 4. The encoded protein may play a role in topographic retinotectal projection and in the regulation of retinal angiogenesis in response to hypoxia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]
GeneCards Summary for CHRDL1 Gene
CHRDL1 (Chordin Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHRDL1 include Megalocornea and Ectodermal Dysplasia, Ectrodactyly, And Macular Dystrophy Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by BMP. An important paralog of this gene is CHRDL2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CHRDL1 Gene
Antagonizes the function of BMP4 by binding to it and preventing its interaction with receptors. Alters the fate commitment of neural stem cells from gliogenesis to neurogenesis. Contributes to neuronal differentiation of neural stem cells in the brain by preventing the adoption of a glial fate. May play a crucial role in dorsoventral axis formation. May play a role in embryonic bone formation (By similarity). May also play an important role in regulating retinal angiogenesis through modulation of BMP4 actions in endothelial cells. Plays a role during anterior segment eye development.
