Unc-5 homolog C

This gene product belongs to the UNC-5 family of netrin receptors. Netrins are secreted proteins that direct axon extension and cell migration during neural development. They are bifunctional proteins that act as attractants for some cell types and as repellents for others, and these opposite actions are thought to be mediated by two classes of receptors. The UNC-5 family of receptors mediate the repellent response to netrin; they are transmembrane proteins containing 2 immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains and 2 type I thrombospondin motifs in the extracellular region.

Shen et al., Changsha, China. In Neurobiol Aging, 31 Oct 2014
Recently, 3 rare coding variants significantly associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD) risk have been identified in western populations using whole exome sequencing method, including p.R47H in TREM2, p.V232M in PLD3, and p.T835M in UNC5C.
Target-dependent expression of the netrin-1 receptor, UNC5C, in projection neurons of the ventral tegmental area.
Flores et al., Montréal, Canada. In Neuroscience, Mar 2014
We have shown previously that the netrin-1 receptor, unc-5 homologue C (UNC5C), is expressed by ventral tegmental area (VTA) dopamine (DA) neurons of rodents, but only from adolescence onwards (Manitt et al., 2010; Auger et al., 2013).
Netrin 1 and Dcc signalling are required for confinement of central axons within the central nervous system.
Wilson et al., Umeå, Sweden. In Development, Feb 2014
We provide evidence that netrin 1 signalling preserves CNS/PNS axonal integrity in three ways: (1) netrin 1/Dcc ventral attraction diverts axons away from potential exit points; (2) a Dcc/Unc5c-dependent netrin 1 chemoinhibitory barrier in the dorsolateral spinal cord prevents interneurons from being close to the dorsal CNS/PNS transition zone; and (3) a netrin 1/Dcc-dependent, Unc5c-independent mechanism that actively prevents exit from the CNS.
Evaluation of the colorectal cancer risk conferred by rare UNC5C alleles.
Bezieau et al., Nantes, France. In World J Gastroenterol, Feb 2014
AIM: To evaluate the risk associated with variants of the UNC5C gene recently suspected to predispose to familial colorectal cancer (CRC).
Over-expression of either MECP2_e1 or MECP2_e2 in neuronally differentiated cells results in different patterns of gene expression.
Vincent et al., Toronto, Canada. In Plos One, Dec 2013
Down-regulation of expression in the presence of MECP2_e1 was seen with UNC5C and RPH3A.
Unc5C and DCC act downstream of Ctip2 and Satb2 and contribute to corpus callosum formation.
Tarabykin et al., Berlin, Germany. In Nat Commun, Dec 2013
We show that the expression of two Netrin1 receptors- DCC and Unc5C is under direct negative regulation by Satb2 and Ctip2, respectively.
An iteration normalization and test method for differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data.
Zhang et al., Urbana, United States. In Biodata Min, Dec 2013
What's more, we discovered that gene UNC5C is highly associated with kidney cancer and so on.
Expression of netrin-1 receptors in retina of oxygen-induced retinopathy in mice.
Xia et al., Changsha, China. In Bmc Ophthalmol, Dec 2013
RESULTS: RT-PCR results showed that, except for UNC5A, netrin-1 receptor subtypes UNC5B, UNC5C, UNC5D, DCC, neogenin, and A2b were all expressed in the retinas of OIR mice 17 days after birth.
Expression of unc5 family genes in zebrafish brain during embryonic development.
Gao et al., Shanghai, China. In Gene Expr Patterns, Dec 2013
Here we have determined the temporal and spatial expression patterns of unc5 gene family members (unc5a, unc5b, unc5c, unc5da and unc5db) by RT-PCR and in situ hybridization.
unc5c haploinsufficient phenotype: striking similarities with the dcc haploinsufficiency model.
Flores et al., Canada. In Eur J Neurosci, Sep 2013
We show that unc5c haploinsufficiency results in diminished amphetamine-induced locomotion in male and female mice.
Exome sequencing identifies early gastric carcinoma as an early stage of advanced gastric cancer.
Kim et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Plos One, 2012
The DYRK3, GPR116, MCM10, PCDH17, PCDHB1, RDH5 and UNC5C genes are recurrently mutated in EGCs and may be involved in early carcinogenesis.
Methylation of the UNC5C gene is frequently detected in hepatocellular carcinoma.

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Recently, we detected that UNC5C expression was downregulated in colon and gastric cancer.
Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule (DSCAM) associates with uncoordinated-5C (UNC5C) in netrin-1-mediated growth cone collapse.
Liu et al., Toledo, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2012
knockdown of DSCAM inhibits netrin-induced tyrosine phosphorylation of UNC5C and Fyn as well as the interaction of UNC5C with Fyn. The double knockdown of both receptors abolishes the induction of Fyn tyrosine phosphorylation by netrin-1

Genetic and epigenetic control of UNC5C expression in human renal cell carcinoma.
Zhang et al., Beijing, China. In Eur J Cancer, 2011
UNC5C acts as a tumour suppressor in RCC and is down-regulated in RCC. Loss of heterozygosity and DNA methylation contribute to the inactivation of UNC5C in renal cell carcinoma.
