Summaries for MPP7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MPP7 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the p55 Stardust family of membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) proteins, which function in the establishment of epithelial cell polarity. This family member forms a complex with the polarity protein DLG1 (discs, large homolog 1) and facilitates epithelial cell polarity and tight junction formation. Polymorphisms in this gene are associated with variations in site-specific bone mineral density (BMD). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

GeneCards Summary for MPP7 Gene

MPP7 (Membrane Palmitoylated Protein 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MPP7 include Retinitis Pigmentosa 24.
