Summaries for PODN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PODN Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the small leucine-rich repeat protein family and contains an amino terminal CX3CXCX7C cysteine-rich cluster followed by a leucine-rich repeat domain. Studies suggest that this protein could function to inhibit smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration following arterial injury. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
