Summaries for DNM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DNM1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the dynamin subfamily of GTP-binding proteins. The encoded protein possesses unique mechanochemical properties used to tubulate and sever membranes, and is involved in clathrin-mediated endocytosis and other vesicular trafficking processes. Actin and other cytoskeletal proteins act as binding partners for the encoded protein, which can also self-assemble leading to stimulation of GTPase activity. More than sixty highly conserved copies of the 3' region of this gene are found elsewhere in the genome, particularly on chromosomes Y and 15. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DNM1 Gene

DNM1 (Dynamin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNM1 include Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 31 and Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. Among its related pathways are EGF/EGFR Signaling Pathway and CXCR3-mediated signaling events. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding. An important paralog of this gene is DNM2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNM1 Gene

  • Microtubule-associated force-producing protein involved in producing microtubule bundles and able to bind and hydrolyze GTP. Most probably involved in vesicular trafficking processes. Involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis.

Tocris Summary for DNM1 Gene

  • GTPases are a group of enzymes that catalyze hydrolysis of the gamma phosphate bond in guanine triphosphate (GTP) to form guanine diphosphate (GDP). Mg2+ ions are essential for catalytic activity. GTPases, often coupled to G proteins, are essential in signal transduction.
