Previous GeneCards Identifiers for DNAJC10 Gene
This gene encodes an endoplasmic reticulum co-chaperone which is part of the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation complex involved in recognizing and degrading misfolded proteins. The encoded protein reduces incorrect disulfide bonds in misfolded glycoproteins. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for DNAJC10 Gene
DNAJC10 (DnaJ Heat Shock Protein Family (Hsp40) Member C10) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Protein processing in endoplasmic reticulum. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chaperone binding and protein disulfide oxidoreductase activity. An important paralog of this gene is TXNDC5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNAJC10 Gene
Endoplasmic reticulum disulfide reductase involved both in the correct folding of proteins and degradation of misfolded proteins. Required for efficient folding of proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum by catalyzing the removal of non-native disulfide bonds formed during the folding of proteins, such as LDLR. Also involved in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) by reducing incorrect disulfide bonds in misfolded glycoproteins recognized by EDEM1. Interaction with HSPA5 is required its activity, not for the disulfide reductase activity, but to facilitate the release of DNAJC10 from its substrate. Promotes apoptotic signaling pathway in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress.
