  Exon-Intron structure of human CD53 gene.
Description Gene size: 26,77 Kbp; 8 exons.
Transcription Transcript length: 1,567 bps.


Note Size: 219 amino acids; 24341 Da; Four transmembrane domains.
Subcellular location: Plasma Membrane; endosomes.
  The CD53 protein has four transmembrane domains. Several residues are conserved and define the tetraspanin protein family. The protein is glycosylated (green) in its second extracellular loop. Internally the protein is palmitoylated (red lines). EC: extracellular.
Localisation Plasma membrane; endosomes; exoxomes.
Function Modifier of signal transduction.
Homology Member of the tetraspanin protein family.
