Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HMMR Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is involved in cell motility. It is expressed in breast tissue and together with other proteins, it forms a complex with BRCA1 and BRCA2, thus is potentially associated with higher risk of breast cancer. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
GeneCards Summary for HMMR Gene
HMMR (Hyaluronan Mediated Motility Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HMMR include Breast Cancer and Fibrosarcoma. Among its related pathways are Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hyaluronic acid binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for HMMR Gene
Receptor for hyaluronic acid (HA) (By similarity). Involved in cell motility (By similarity). When hyaluronan binds to HMMR, the phosphorylation of a number of proteins, including PTK2/FAK1 occurs. May also be involved in cellular transformation and metastasis formation, and in regulating extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK) activity. May act as a regulator of adipogenisis (By similarity).
