Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SPRED1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the Sprouty family of proteins and is phosphorylated by tyrosine kinase in response to several growth factors. The encoded protein can act as a homodimer or as a heterodimer with SPRED2 to regulate activation of the MAP kinase cascade. Defects in this gene are a cause of neurofibromatosis type 1-like syndrome (NFLS). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SPRED1 Gene
SPRED1 (Sprouty Related EVH1 Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPRED1 include Legius Syndrome and Neurofibromatosis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and RET signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and protein serine/threonine kinase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is SPRED2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SPRED1 Gene
Tyrosine kinase substrate that inhibits growth-factor-mediated activation of MAP kinase (By similarity). Negatively regulates hematopoiesis of bone marrow (By similarity). Inhibits fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-induced retinal lens fiber differentiation, probably by inhibiting FGF-mediated phosphorylation of ERK1/2 (By similarity). Attenuates actin stress fiber formation via inhibition of TESK1-mediated phosphorylation of cofilin (PubMed:18216281). Inhibits TGFB-induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in lens epithelial cells (By similarity).
