Summaries for NXPH1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NXPH1 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the neurexophilin family and encodes a secreted protein with a variable N-terminal domain, a highly conserved, N-glycosylated central domain, a short linker region, and a cysteine-rich C-terminal domain. This protein forms a very tight complex with alpha neurexins, a group of proteins that promote adhesion between dendrites and axons. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NXPH1 Gene

NXPH1 (Neurexophilin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NXPH1 include Paranoid Schizophrenia. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include signaling receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is NXPH2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NXPH1 Gene

  • May be signaling molecules that resemble neuropeptides and that act by binding to alpha-neurexins and possibly other receptors.
