PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

motifs/domains
  • N terminal SEMA homology domain
  • two cysteine rich domains sharing homology with the scatter factor reception (MET family) MRS
  • a single transmembrane segment (1TM)
  • HOMOLOGY
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule family
  • plexin family
  • CATEGORY receptor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • virus-encoded receptor for the semaphorin 7A (SEMA7A)
  • may be involved in the regulation of leukocyte movement
  • potential tumor suppressor protein in melanoma progression, and loss of Plexin C1 expression may promote melanoma invasion and metastasis through loss of inhibitory signaling on cofilin activation (Scott 2009)
  • involved in neural and vascular patterning
