Summaries for PROCR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PROCR Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a receptor for activated protein C, a serine protease activated by and involved in the blood coagulation pathway. The encoded protein is an N-glycosylated type I membrane protein that enhances the activation of protein C. Mutations in this gene have been associated with venous thromboembolism and myocardial infarction, as well as with late fetal loss during pregnancy. The encoded protein may also play a role in malarial infection and has been associated with cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for PROCR Gene

PROCR (Protein C Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PROCR include Purpura Fulminans and Arteriovenous Fistula. Among its related pathways are Formation of Fibrin Clot (Clotting Cascade) and Complement and coagulation cascades.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PROCR Gene

  • Binds activated protein C. Enhances protein C activation by the thrombin-thrombomodulin complex; plays a role in the protein C pathway controlling blood coagulation.
