Summaries for DPT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DPT Gene

  • Dermatopontin is an extracellular matrix protein with possible functions in cell-matrix interactions and matrix assembly. The protein is found in various tissues and many of its tyrosine residues are sulphated. Dermatopontin is postulated to modify the behavior of TGF-beta through interaction with decorin. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DPT Gene

DPT (Dermatopontin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DPT include Commensal Bacterial Infectious Disease and Anisometropia.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DPT Gene

  • Seems to mediate adhesion by cell surface integrin binding. May serve as a communication link between the dermal fibroblast cell surface and its extracellular matrix environment. Enhances TGFB1 activity. Inhibits cell proliferation. Accelerates collagen fibril formation, and stabilizes collagen fibrils against low-temperature dissociation (By similarity).
