Gene: CLDN5 (claudin 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CLDN5
Name: claudin 5
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including establishment of blood-retinal barrier; positive regulation of bicellular tight junction assembly; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to apicolateral plasma membrane and bicellular tight junction. Colocalizes with cortical actin cytoskeleton. Implicated in schizophrenia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: androgen withdrawal and apoptosis induced protein RVP1-like; AWAL; BEC1; claudin-5; CPETRL1; TMDVCF; TMVCF; transmembrane protein deleted in VCFS; transmembrane protein deleted in velocardiofacial syndrome
