Gene: Plec (plectin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Plec
Name: plectin
Description: Predicted to have ankyrin binding activity and protein N-terminus binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including hemidesmosome assembly; intermediate filament cytoskeleton organization; and response to nutrient. Localizes to the brush border and contractile fiber. Predicted to colocalize with the intermediate filament. Used to study epidermolysis bullosa simplex Ogna type and epidermolysis bullosa simplex with muscular dystrophy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene 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. Is expressed in retina and skin. Orthologous to human PLEC (plectin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
