GeneCards Summary for GPM6A Gene
GPM6A (Glycoprotein M6A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GPM6A include Megalencephalic Leukoencephalopathy With Subcortical Cysts 1 and Retinitis Pigmentosa 29. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is GPM6B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GPM6A Gene
Involved in neuronal differentiation, including differentiation and migration of neuronal stem cells. Plays a role in neuronal plasticity and is involved in neurite and filopodia outgrowth, filopodia motility and probably synapse formation. GPM6A-induced filopodia formation involves mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and Src signaling pathways. May be involved in neuronal NGF-dependent Ca(2+) influx. May be involved in regulation of endocytosis and intracellular trafficking of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs); enhances internalization and recycling of mu-type opioid receptor.
