 NCBI Summary for PRG4    The protein encoded by this gene is a large proteoglycan that is synthesized by chondrocytes located at the surface of articular cartilage and by some synovial lining cells. This protein contains both chondroitin sulfate and keratan sulfate glycosaminoglycans. It functions as a boundary lubricant at the cartilage surface and contributes to the elastic absorption and energy dissipation of synovial fluid. Mutations in this gene result in camptodactyly-arthropathy-coxa vara-pericarditis syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for PRG4    PRG4: Plays a role in boundary lubrication within articulating joints. Prevents protein deposition onto cartilage from synovial fluid by controlling adhesion-dependent synovial growth and inhibiting the adhesion of synovial cells to the cartilage surface. Defects in PRG4 are the cause of camptodactyly- arthropathy-coxa vara-pericarditis syndrome (CACP); also known as Jacobs syndrome. CACP is an autosomal recessive disorder. Individuals with CACP have normal appearing joints at birth but with advancing age develop joint failure associated with noninflammatory synoviocyte hyperplasia and subintimal fibrosis of the synovial capsule. 6 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
