Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PPFIA3 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the LAR protein-tyrosine phosphatase-interacting protein (liprin) family. Liprins interact with members of LAR family of transmembrane protein tyrosine phosphatases, which are known to be important for axon guidance and mammary gland development. Liprin family protein has been shown to localize phosphatase LAR to cell focal adhesions and may be involved in the molecular organization of presynaptic active zones. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for PPFIA3 Gene
PPFIA3 (PTPRF Interacting Protein Alpha 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PPFIA3 include Mental Retardation And Microcephaly With Pontine And Cerebellar Hypoplasia and Non-Syndromic X-Linked Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Neurotransmitter Release Cycle and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. An important paralog of this gene is PPFIA1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for PPFIA3 Gene
May regulate the disassembly of focal adhesions. May localize receptor-like tyrosine phosphatases type 2A at specific sites on the plasma membrane, possibly regulating their interaction with the extracellular environment and their association with substrates.
