UniProt Comment
  • Calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding protein that plays a role in calcium-mediated intracellular processes (PubMed:14674885). Involved in the TNF-alpha receptor signaling pathway in a calcium-dependent manner (PubMed:14674885). Exhibits calcium-dependent phospholipid binding properties (PubMed:9430674, PubMed:19539605). Plays a role in neuronal progenitor cell differentiation; induces neurite outgrowth via a AKT-dependent signaling cascade and calcium-independent manner (PubMed:23263657, PubMed:25450385). May recruit target proteins to the cell membrane in a calcium-dependent manner (PubMed:12522145). May function in membrane trafficking (PubMed:9430674). Involved in TNF-alpha-induced NF-kappa-B transcriptional repression by inducing endoprotease processing of the transcription factor NF-kappa-B p65/RELA subunit (PubMed:18212740). Also induces endoprotease processing of NF-kappa-B p50/NFKB1, p52/NFKB2, RELB and REL (PubMed:18212740).
  • Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs1204656) and 38 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
