Entrez Gene Summary for GPC3 Gene

  • Cell surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans are composed of a membrane-associated protein core substituted with a variable number of heparan sulfate chains. Members of the glypican-related integral membrane proteoglycan family (GRIPS) contain a core protein anchored to the cytoplasmic membrane via a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol linkage. These proteins may play a role in the control of cell division and growth regulation. The protein encoded by this gene can bind to and inhibit the dipeptidyl peptidase activity of CD26, and it can induce apoptosis in certain cell types. Deletion mutations in this gene are associated with Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome, also known as Simpson dysmorphia syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for GPC3 Gene

GPC3 (Glypican 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GPC3 include Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome, Type 1 and Wilms Tumor 1. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include heparan sulfate proteoglycan binding and peptidyl-dipeptidase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is GPC5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GPC3 Gene

  • Cell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate (PubMed:14610063). Negatively regulates the hedgehog signaling pathway when attached via the GPI-anchor to the cell surface by competing with the hedgehog receptor PTC1 for binding to hedgehog proteins (By similarity). Binding to the hedgehog protein SHH triggers internalization of the complex by endocytosis and its subsequent lysosomal degradation (By similarity). Positively regulates the canonical Wnt signaling pathway by binding to the Wnt receptor Frizzled and stimulating the binding of the Frizzled receptor to Wnt ligands (PubMed:16227623, PubMed:24496449). Positively regulates the non-canonical Wnt signaling pathway (By similarity). Binds to CD81 which decreases the availability of free CD81 for binding to the transcriptional repressor HHEX, resulting in nuclear translocation of HHEX and transcriptional repression (By similarity). Inhibits the dipeptidyl peptidase activity of DPP4 (PubMed:17549790). Plays a role in limb patterning and skeletal development by controlling the cellular response to BMP4 (By similarity). Modulates the effects of growth factors BMP2, BMP7 and FGF7 on renal branching morphogenesis (By similarity). Required for coronary vascular development (By similarity). Plays a role in regulating cell movements during gastrulation (By similarity).

    Molecular mass:
    65563 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterodimer; disulfide-linked (PubMed:14610063). Cleavage by a furin-like convertase results in production of alpha and beta chains which form a disulfide-linked heterodimer (PubMed:14610063). Interacts with DPP4 (PubMed:17549790). Interacts with FGF2 (By similarity). Interacts with WNT5A (PubMed:14610063). Also interacts with WNT3A and WNT7B (PubMed:16227623). Interacts with hedgehog protein SHH; the heparan sulfate chains are not required for the interaction (By similarity). Also interacts with hedgehog protein IHH (By similarity). Interacts with CD81 (By similarity). Interacts with Wnt receptors FZD4, FZD7 and FZD8; the heparan sulfate chains are required for the interaction (PubMed:24496449).
    Miscellaneous:
    • Used as a marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as it is expressed in HCC but is not detectable in hepatocytes from normal or benign liver diseases (PubMed:12851874). When attached to the cell surface, stimulates the growth of HCC cells by increasing canonical Wnt signaling (PubMed:16024626). Cleavage is not required for stimulation of Wnt signaling or HCC growth (PubMed:16227623).

Post-translational modifications for GPC3 Gene

  • O-glycosylated; contains heparan sulfate.
  • Cleaved intracellularly by a furin-like convertase to generate 2 subunits, alpha and beta, which remain associated through disulfide bonds and are associated with the cell surface via the GPI-anchor (PubMed:14610063). This processing is essential for its role in inhibition of hedgehog signaling (PubMed:25653284). A second proteolytic event may result in cleavage of the protein on the cell surface, separating it from the GPI-anchor and leading to its shedding from the cell surface (PubMed:14610063).
  • Glycosylation at Asn124, Asn241, Ser359, Asn418, Ser495, and Ser509
