GeneCards Summary for SPPL3 Gene
SPPL3 (Signal Peptide Peptidase Like 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPPL3 include Plasmodium Ovale Malaria. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and aspartic endopeptidase activity, intramembrane cleaving. An important paralog of this gene is SPPL2B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SPPL3 Gene
Intramembrane-cleaving aspartic protease (I-CLiP) that cleaves type II membrane protein substrates in or close to their luminal transmembrane domain boundaries (PubMed:16873890, PubMed:25354954, PubMed:25827571). Acts like a sheddase by mediating the proteolytic release and secretion of active site-containing ectodomains of glycan-modifiying glycosidase and glycosyltransferase enzymes such as MGAT5, B4GAT1 and B4GALT1 (PubMed:25354954, PubMed:25827571). Catalyzes the intramembrane cleavage of the envelope glycoprotein gp130 and/or the leader peptide gp18LP of the simian foamy virus independent of prior ectodomain shedding by furin or furin-like proprotein convertase (PC)-mediated cleavage proteolysis (PubMed:23132852). May also have the ability to serve as a shedding protease for subsequent intramembrane proteolysis by SPPL2A and SPPL2B of the envelope glycoprotein gp130 (PubMed:23132852). Plays a role in the regulation of cellular glycosylation processes (PubMed:25354954). Required to link T-cell antigen receptor (TCR) and calcineurin-NFAT signaling cascades in lymphocytes by promoting the association of STIM1 and ORAI1 during store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) in a protease-independent manner (PubMed:25384971).
