GeneCards Summary for DBNL Gene
DBNL (Drebrin Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DBNL include Glycogen Storage Disease X and Encephalopathy, Progressive, Early-Onset, With Episodic Rhabdomyolysis. Among its related pathways are Protein-protein interactions at synapses and T cell receptor signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and protein C-terminus binding. An important paralog of this gene is DBN1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DBNL Gene
Adapter protein that binds F-actin and DNM1, and thereby plays a role in receptor-mediated endocytosis. Plays a role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton, formation of cell projections, such as neurites, in neuron morphogenesis and synapse formation via its interaction with WASL and COBL. Does not bind G-actin and promote actin polymerization by itself. Required for the formation of organized podosome rosettes (By similarity). May act as a common effector of antigen receptor-signaling pathways in leukocytes. Acts as a key component of the immunological synapse that regulates T-cell activation by bridging TCRs and the actin cytoskeleton to gene activation and endocytic processes.
