Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NRG4 Gene
The neuregulins, including NRG4, activate type-1 growth factor receptors (see EGFR; MIM 131550) to initiating cell-to-cell signaling through tyrosine phosphorylation (Harari et al., 1999 [PubMed 10348342]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for NRG4 Gene
NRG4 (Neuregulin 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NRG4 include Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and Agrin Interactions at Neuromuscular Junction. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include signaling receptor binding and growth factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NRG3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NRG4 Gene
Low affinity ligand for the ERBB4 tyrosine kinase receptor. Concomitantly recruits ERBB1 and ERBB2 coreceptors, resulting in ligand-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation and activation of the ERBB receptors. Does not bind to the ERBB1, ERBB2 and ERBB3 receptors (By similarity).
