    CD171/L1CAM 研究背景

    基因概述: The protein encoded by this gene is an axonal glycoprotein belonging to the immunoglobulin supergene family. The ectodomain, consisting of several immunoglobulin-like domains and fibronectin-like repeats (type III), is linked via a single transmembrane sequence to a conserved cytoplasmic domain. This cell adhesion molecule plays an important role in nervous system development, including neuronal migration and differentiation. Mutations in the gene cause three X-linked neurological syndromes known by the acronym CRASH (corpus callosum hypoplasia, retardation, aphasia, spastic paraplegia and hydrocephalus). Alternative splicing of a neuron-specific exon is thought to be functionally relevant.

    相关疾病 : DISEASE: Hydrocephalus due to stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius (HSAS) [MIM:307000]: Hydrocephalus is a condition in which abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain causes increased intracranial pressure inside the skull. This is usually due to blockage of cerebrospinal fluid outflow in the brain ventricles or in the subarachnoid space at the base of the brain. In children is typically characterized by enlargement of the head, prominence of the forehead, brain atrophy, mental deterioration, and convulsions. In adults the syndrome includes incontinence, imbalance, and dementia. HSAS is characterized by mental retardation and enlarged brain ventricles. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10797421, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12435569, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7562969, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7762552, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7881431, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7920659, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8401576, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8556302, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8929944, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9118141, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9195224, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9268105, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9521424, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9744477}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. L1CAM mutations have also been found in few patients affected by hydrocephalus with Hirschsprung disease, suggesting a role of this gene acting either in a direct or indirect way in the pathogenesis of Hirschsprung disease (PubMed:22344793). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:22344793}.; DISEASE: Mental retardation, aphasia, shuffling gait, and adducted thumbs syndrome (MASA) [MIM:303350]: An X-linked recessive syndrome with a highly variable clinical spectrum. Main clinical features include spasticity and hyperreflexia of lower limbs, shuffling gait, mental retardation, aphasia and adducted thumbs. The features of spasticity have been referred to as complicated spastic paraplegia type 1 (SPG1). Some patients manifest corpus callosum hypoplasia and hydrocephalus. Inter- and intrafamilial variability is very wide, such that patients with hydrocephalus, MASA, SPG1, and agenesis of corpus callosum can be present within the same family. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10805190, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11857550, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16816908, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7920659, ECO:0000269|PubMed:7920660, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9268105, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9300653, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9452110, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9832035}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.; DISEASE: Spastic paraplegia 1, X-linked (SPG1) [MIM:303350]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body.

    L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM), also designated as CD171, is a cell adhesion receptor of the immunoglobulin superfamily, known for its roles in nerve cell function. While originally believed to be present only in brain cells, in recent years L1-CAM has been detected in other tissues, and in a variety of cancer cells, including some common types of human cancer. L1CAM interacts with a variety of ligands including axonin-1, CD9, neurocan and intergrins, and it has been revealed that the RGD motif in the sixth Ig domain of L1CAM is a binding site for integrins, thus important for nuclear signaling. Disruption of L1CAM function causes three X-linked neurological syndromes, i.e. hydrocephalus, MASA syndrome (mental retardation, aphasia, shuffling gait and adducted thumbs) and spastic paraplegia syndrome. Overexpression of L1CAM in normal and cancer cells increased motility, enhanced growth rate and promoted cell transformation and tumorigenicity. Recent work has identified L1CAM (CD171) as a novel marker for human carcinoma progression, and a candidate for anti-cancer therapy.
