Summaries for NPTXR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NPTXR Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein similar to the rat neuronal pentraxin receptor. The rat pentraxin receptor is an integral membrane protein that is thought to mediate neuronal uptake of the snake venom toxin, taipoxin, and its transport into the synapses. Studies in rat indicate that translation of this mRNA initiates at a non-AUG (CUG) codon. This may also be true for mouse and human, based on strong sequence conservation amongst these species.

GeneCards Summary for NPTXR Gene

NPTXR (Neuronal Pentraxin Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPTXR include Acromesomelic Dysplasia, Maroteaux Type and Acromesomelic Dysplasia. An important paralog of this gene is NPTX2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPTXR Gene

  • May be involved in mediating uptake of synaptic material during synapse remodeling or in mediating the synaptic clustering of AMPA glutamate receptors at a subset of excitatory synapses.
