Literature associating PLCE1 and familial nephrotic syndrome
1-phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate phosphodiesterase epsilon-1; The production of the second messenger molecules diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is mediated by activated phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C enzymes. PLCE1 is a bifunctional enzyme which also regulates small GTPases of the Ras superfamily through its Ras guanine- exchange factor (RasGEF) activity. As an effector of heterotrimeric and small G-protein, it may play a role in cell survival, cell growth, actin organization and T-cell activation; C2 domain containing phospholipases
Synonyms: PLCE1, PLCE1p, hPLCE1, B7ZM61, Q9P212 ...
