    CD113/Nectin-3 Summary & Protein Information

    CD113/Nectin-3 Background

    Gene Summary: This gene encodes a member of the nectin family of proteins, which function as adhesion molecules at adherens junctions. This family member interacts with other nectin-like proteins and with afadin, a filamentous actin-binding protein involved in the regulation of directional motility, cell proliferation and survival. This gene plays a role in ocular development involving the ciliary body. Mutations in this gene are believed to result in congenital ocular defects. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants

    Subunit structure: Cis- and trans-homodimer. Can form trans-heterodimers with PVRL1/nectin-1, PVRL2/nectin-2, PVR, IGSF4B/Necl-1 and with IGSF4. Interacts with MLLT4/afadin. Binds with low affinity to TIGIT.
    Subcellular location: Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein (Potential).
    Tissue specificity: Predominantly expressed in testis and placenta as well as in many cell lines, including epithelial cell lines.
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the nectin family.
    Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.

    Poliovirus receptor-related 3 (PVRL3), also known as Nectin-3 and CD113, is a member of the nectin family. PVRL3/Nectin-3 is an 83 kDa, type I transmembrane glycoprotein. Its precursor is 549 amino acids (aa) in length and contains an extended signal sequence of 57 aa, an extracellular domain (ECD) of 347 aa, a transmembrane segment of 21 aa, and a cytoplasmic region of 124 aa. Nectin-3 has three splicing variants, nectin-3alpha (biggest), -3beta (middle), and -3gamma (smallest). It is predominantly expressed in testis and placenta as well as in various cell lines, including epithelial cell lines. PVRL3/Nectin-3 plays a role in cell-cell adhesion through heterophilic trans-interactions with nectin-like proteins or nectins, such as trans-interaction with PVRL2/Nectin-2 at Sertoli-spermatid junctions. PVRL3/Nectin-3 is thus involved in the formation of cell-cell junctions, including adherens junctions and synapses. It has been shown to induce endocytosis-mediated down-regulation of PVR from the cell surface, resulting in reduction of cell movement and proliferation.
