PATJ, PDZ domain protein, CIPP
This gene encodes a protein with multiple PDZ domains. PDZ domains mediate protein-protein interactions, and proteins with multiple PDZ domains often organize multimeric complexes at the plasma membrane. This protein localizes to tight junctions and to the apical membrane of epithelial cells. A similar protein in Drosophila is a scaffolding protein which tethers several members of a multimeric signaling complex in photoreceptors. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Papers on PATJ
Drosophila Patj plays a supporting role in apical-basal polarity but is essential for viability.
Hong et al., Pittsburgh, United States. In Development, 2012
dPatj possesses an as yet unidentified function that is essential for pupal development.
Pals-associated tight junction protein functionally links dopamine and angiotensin II to the regulation of sodium transport in renal epithelial cells.
Bertorello et al., Stockholm, Sweden. In Br J Pharmacol, 2009
Signalling molecules and effectors can be integrated into a functional network by the scaffold organizer protein PATJ via its multiple PDZ domains.
Similar and distinct properties of MUPP1 and Patj, two homologous PDZ domain-containing tight-junction proteins.
Tsukita et al., Kyoto, Japan. In Mol Cell Biol, 2009
Results suggest that signaling mediated by Pals1, which has a higher affinity for Patj than for MUPP1 and is involved in the activation of the Par6-aPKC complex, is of principal importance for the function of Patj in epithelial cells.
Channel-interacting PDZ protein, 'CIPP', interacts with proteins involved in cytoskeletal dynamics.
Dente et al., Pisa, Italy. In Biochem J, 2009
Data show taht channel-interacting PDZ protein, 'CIPP', interacts with proteins involved in cytoskeletal dynamics, in particular, with the small G-protein effector IRSp53
The Amot/Patj/Syx signaling complex spatially controls RhoA GTPase activity in migrating endothelial cells.
Holmgren et al., Stockholm, Sweden. In Blood, 2009
the directional migration of capillaries in the embryo is governed by the Amot:Patj/Mupp1:Syx signaling that controls local GTPase activity
