Entrez Gene Summary for THSD7A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is found almost exclusively in endothelial cells from placenta and umbilical cord. The encoded protein appears to interact with alpha(V)beta(3) integrin and paxillin to inhibit endothelial cell migration and tube formation. This protein may be involved in cytoskeletal organization. Variations in this gene may be associated with low bone mineral density in osteoporosis. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]

GeneCards Summary for THSD7A Gene

THSD7A (Thrombospondin Type 1 Domain Containing 7A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with THSD7A include Membranous Nephropathy and Osteoporosis. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and O-linked glycosylation. An important paralog of this gene is THSD7B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for THSD7A Gene
