LTBP3 gene

latent transforming growth factor beta binding protein 3

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene forms a complex with transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) proteins and may be involved in their subcellular localization. Activation of this complex requires removal of the encoded binding protein. This protein also may play a structural role in the extracellular matrix. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

From UniProt:

May be involved in the assembly, secretion and targeting of TGFB1 to sites at which it is stored and/or activated. May play critical roles in controlling and directing the activity of TGFB1. May have a structural role in the extra cellular matrix (ECM).

From UniProt:

Dental anomalies and short stature (DASS): A disorder characterized by hypoplastic amelogenesis imperfecta, significant short stature, brachyolmia-like anomalies including platyspondyly with short pedicles, narrow intervertebral and interpedicular distances, rectangular-shaped vertebrae with posterior scalloping and herniation of the nuclei, and broad femoral necks. Dental anomalies include widely spaced, small, yellow teeth, oligodontia, and severely reduced to absent enamel. [MIM:601216]
