PVRL1/NECTIN1 Proteins, Antibodies, cDNA Clones, ELISA Kits Research Reagents

NECTIN1 (Nectin Cell Adhesion Molecule 1) is a protein coding gene located on human chromosome 11q23.3. NECTIN1 is also known as ED4, PRR, HIgR, HV1S, HVEC, OFC7, PRR1, PVRR, CD111, PVRL1, PVRR1, SK-12, CLPED1 and nectin-1. The human NECTIN1 gene encodes a 57158 Da protein containing 517 amino acids. The NECTIN1 protein is biasedly expressed in skin, esophagus and other tissues. Among its related pathways are Cell junction organization and Cytoskeleton remodeling Regulation of actin cytoskeleton by Rho GTPases. NECTIN3 is an important paralog of NECTIN1 gene. NECTIN1 is associated with some diseases, including Cleft Lip/Palate-Ectodermal Dysplasia Syndrome and Herpes Simplex.

        PVRL1/NECTIN1 Background

        Poliovirus receptor-related 1 (herpesvirus entry mediator C; nectin-1; CD111), also known as PVRL1 is a cell adhesion molecule belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily that can bind to virion glycoprotein D (gD) to mediate entry of herpes simplex viruses (HSV) and pseudorabies virus (PRV). CD111/Nectin-1/PVRL1 colocalizes with E-cadherin at adherens junctions in epithelial cells. The disruption of cell junctions can result in the redistribution of nectin-1. To determine whether disruption of junctions by calcium depletion influenced the susceptibility of epithelial cells to viral entry, Madin-Darby canine kidney cells expressing endogenous nectin-1 or transfected human nectin-1 were tested for the ability to bind soluble forms of viral gD and to be infected by HSV and PRV, before and after calcium depletion. It has been revealed that binding of HSV and PRV gD was localized to adherens junctions in cells maintained in normal medium but was distributed, along with nectin-1, over the entire cell surface after calcium depletion. Both the binding of gD and the fraction of cells that could be infected by HSV-1 and PRV were enhanced by calcium depletion. Taken together, CD111/Nectin-1/PVRL1 confined to adherens junctions in epithelial cells is not very accessible to virus, whereas dissociation of cell junctions releases nectin-1 to serve more efficiently as an entry recptor.
