This gene encodes a member of the nidogen family of basement membrane glycoproteins. The protein interacts with several other components of basement membranes, and may play a role in cell interactions with the extracellular matrix. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for NID1 Gene
NID1 (Nidogen 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NID1 include Dandy-Walker Syndrome and Neuronal Intestinal Dysplasia. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and MET promotes cell motility. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and laminin binding. An important paralog of this gene is NID2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NID1 Gene
Sulfated glycoprotein widely distributed in basement membranes and tightly associated with laminin. Also binds to collagen IV and perlecan. It probably has a role in cell-extracellular matrix interactions.
