Summaries for EDA2R Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EDA2R Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a type III transmembrane protein of the TNFR (tumor necrosis factor receptor) superfamily, and contains cysteine-rich repeats and a single transmembrane domain. This protein binds to the EDA-A2 isoform of ectodysplasin, which plays an important role in maintenance of hair and teeth. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encodes distinct protein isoforms.

GeneCards Summary for EDA2R Gene

EDA2R (Ectodysplasin A2 Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EDA2R include Ectodermal Dysplasia 1, Hypohidrotic, X-Linked and Tonsil Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are TNFs bind their physiological receptors and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include tumor necrosis factor-activated receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is TNFRSF19.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EDA2R Gene

  • Receptor for EDA isoform A2, but not for EDA isoform A1. Mediates the activation of the NF-kappa-B and JNK pathways. Activation seems to be mediated by binding to TRAF3 and TRAF6.
