Summaries for CNTNAP5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CNTNAP5 Gene

  • This gene product belongs to the neurexin family, members of which function in the vertebrate nervous system as cell adhesion molecules and receptors. This protein, like other neurexin proteins, contains epidermal growth factor repeats and laminin G domains. In addition, it includes an F5/8 type C domain, discoidin/neuropilin- and fibrinogen-like domains, and thrombospondin N-terminal-like domains. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CNTNAP5 Gene

CNTNAP5 (Contactin Associated Protein Like 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CNTNAP5 include Posterior Cortical Atrophy and Mowat-Wilson Syndrome. An important paralog of this gene is CNTNAP4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CNTNAP5 Gene

  • May play a role in the correct development and proper functioning of the peripheral and central nervous system and be involved in cell adhesion and intercellular communication.
