Poliovirus receptor-related 3
nectin-3, PRR3, APRR3
This gene encodes a member of the nectin family of proteins, which function as adhesion molecules at adherens junctions. This family member interacts with other nectin-like proteins and with afadin, a filamentous actin-binding protein involved in the regulation of directional motility, cell proliferation and survival. This gene plays a role in ocular development involving the ciliary body. Mutations in this gene are believed to result in congenital ocular defects. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011] (from

We previously showed that cell adhesion molecules nectin-1 and nectin-3 are localized at puncta adherentia junctions of the hippocampal mossy fiber glutamatergic excitatory synapses and that they do not regulate the excitatory synaptic transmission onto the CA3 pyramidal cells.

Our approach was sensitive enough to quantitate oscillations in the phosphorylation of low abundance clock proteins (early flowering4; ELF4 and pseudoresponse regulator3; PRR3) as well as other transcription factors and kinases.

We then examined seminiferous tubules from genetically modified mice deficient (-/-) for one of the cell adhesion molecules, nectin-2 or nectin-3, and compared the number of each cell type at each stage of spermatogenesis with the corresponding value in normal mice.
RESULTS: Strong gender effects on the distribution of the SNPs were apparent: male GD patients carrying an A allele at rs2074503 in the PRR3 gene tended to avoid demonstrating GO (P = 0.008; OR, 0.450; 95% CI, 0.248-0.819),
hair cells and supporting cells express nectin-1 and -3, respectively; their interaction mediates the heterotypic adhesion between these 2 cell types; nectin-1 and -3 promote the formation of the checkerboard-like pattern of the auditory epithelia

The tubulobulbar complex might provide stabilizing conditions, together with the actin-afadin-nectin-2/nectin-3 adhesion unit, to enable sustained and balanced clutching exogenous forces applied during the elongation of the spermatid head.
