Summaries for PDLIM5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDLIM5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a family of proteins that possess a 100-amino acid PDZ domain at the N terminus and one to three LIM domains at the C-terminus. This family member functions as a scaffold protein that tethers protein kinases to the Z-disk in striated muscles. It is thought to function in cardiomyocyte expansion and in restraining postsynaptic growth of excitatory synapses. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

GeneCards Summary for PDLIM5 Gene

PDLIM5 (PDZ And LIM Domain 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PDLIM5 include Nail-Patella Syndrome and Nephrogenic Adenofibroma. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Protein-protein interactions at synapses. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and protein kinase C binding. An important paralog of this gene is LDB3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDLIM5 Gene

  • May play an important role in the heart development by scaffolding PKC to the Z-disk region. May play a role in the regulation of cardiomyocyte expansion. Overexpression promotes the development of heart hypertrophy. Contributes to the regulation of dendritic spine morphogenesis in neurons. May restrain postsynaptic growth of excitatory synapses (By similarity).
