GPC3

Cell surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans are composed of a membrane-associated protein core substituted with a variable number of heparan sulfate chains. Members of the glypican-related integral membrane proteoglycan family (GRIPS) contain a core protein anchored to the cytoplasmic membrane via a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol linkage. These proteins may play a role in the control of cell division and growth regulation. The protein encoded by this gene can bind to and inhibit the dipeptidyl peptidase activity of CD26, and it can induce apoptosis in certain cell types. Deletion mutations in this gene are associated with Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome, also known as Simpson dysmorphia syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
Protein class

Cancer-related genes, Disease related genes, Human disease related genes

Predicted location

Intracellular, Membrane (different isoforms)

Single cell type specificity

Cell type enhanced (Fibroblasts, Syncytiotrophoblasts, Muller glia cells, Cytotrophoblasts, Extravillous trophoblasts)

Immune cell specificity

Immune cell enhanced (naive CD4 T-cell, naive CD8 T-cell)

Cell line specificity

Group enriched (HAP1, Hep G2)

Interaction

Heterodimer; disulfide-linked (PubMed:14610063). Cleavage by a furin-like convertase results in production of alpha and beta chains which form a disulfide-linked heterodimer (PubMed:14610063). Interacts with DPP4 (PubMed:17549790). Interacts with FGF2 (By similarity). Interacts with WNT5A (PubMed:14610063). Also interacts with WNT3A and WNT7B (PubMed:16227623). Interacts with hedgehog protein SHH; the heparan sulfate chains are not required for the interaction (By similarity). Also interacts with hedgehog protein IHH (By similarity). Interacts with CD81 (By similarity). Interacts with Wnt receptors FZD4, FZD7 and FZD8; the heparan sulfate chains are required for the interaction (PubMed:24496449).
