Plexin A3

plexin A3, PLXNA3, XAP6
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the plexin class of proteins. The encoded protein is a transmembrane protein that is exposed on the cell surface. This gene is thought to be involved in epithelial and neural tissue development. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010] (from NCBI)
Papers on plexin A3
Semaphorin-plexin signalling genes associated with human breast tumourigenesis.
Griffiths et al., Gold Coast, Australia. In Gene, 2012
in vitro analysis on PLXNA3 also suggest that this gene may have some form of growth suppressive role in breast cancer, in addition to a similar role for the gene previously reported in ovarian cancer.
Expression and function of semaphorin 3A and its receptors in human monocyte-derived macrophages.
Ivashkiv et al., New York City, United States. In Hum Immunol, 2009
Data show that the expression of Sema3A receptors (neuropilin-1 (NRP-1), NRP-2, plexin A1, plexin A2, and plexin A3) significantly increased during M-CSF-mediated differentiation of monocytes into macrophages.
Analysis of zebrafish sidetracked mutants reveals a novel role for Plexin A3 in intraspinal motor axon guidance.
Granato et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Development, 2007
Plexin A3 plays an additional role in motor axonal morphogenesis.
Novel mutations affecting axon guidance in zebrafish and a role for plexin signalling in the guidance of trigeminal and facial nerve axons.
Okamoto et al., Wako, Japan. In Development, 2007
Plxna3 acts with its ligand Sema3a1 for fasciculation and correct target selection of the Vp and VII motor axons.
