Gene: PLEC (plectin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLEC
Name: plectin
Description: Exhibits ankyrin binding activity. Involved in hemidesmosome assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including the focal adhesion; hemidesmosome; and sarcolemma. Predicted to colocalize with the intermediate filament. Implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2Q; epidermolysis bullosa simplex; epidermolysis bullosa simplex Ogna type; and epidermolysis bullosa simplex with muscular dystrophy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
