Previous GeneCards Identifiers for OS9 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that is highly expressed in osteosarcomas. This protein binds to the hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1), a key regulator of the hypoxic response and angiogenesis, and promotes the degradation of one of its subunits. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for OS9 Gene
OS9 (OS9 Endoplasmic Reticulum Lectin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OS9 include Overhydrated Hereditary Stomatocytosis and Bone Cancer. Among its related pathways are Calnexin/calreticulin cycle and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding. An important paralog of this gene is ERLEC1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for OS9 Gene
Lectin which functions in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) quality control and ER-associated degradation (ERAD). May bind terminally misfolded non-glycosylated proteins as well as improperly folded glycoproteins, retain them in the ER, and possibly transfer them to the ubiquitination machinery and promote their degradation. Possible targets include TRPV4.
