Semaphorin-3E (Semaphorin 3E)

Target (abbrv.) Semaphorin 3E
Target (full name) Semaphorin-3E
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL010470 (5363-51_3)
Entrez Gene Symbol SEMA3E
UniProt ID O15041
UniProt Comment
  • Plays an important role in signaling via the cell surface receptor PLXND1. Mediates reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton, leading to the retraction of cell projections. Promotes focal adhesion disassembly and inhibits adhesion of endothelial cells to the extracellular matrix. Regulates angiogenesis, both during embryogenesis and after birth. Can down-regulate sprouting angiogenesis. Required for normal vascular patterning during embryogenesis. Plays an important role in ensuring the specificity of synapse formation (By similarity).

  • Plexin-D1 Signaling
  • Other semaphorin interactions

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs17284969) and 29 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.
