Genes

CD36

CD36 molecule (thrombospondin receptor) (CD36) is a gene that encodes a glycoprotein that functions as a receptor for thrombospondin in platelets and other cell lines. The protein may also functions as a cell adhesion molecule. Missense mutations, nonsense mutations, silent mutations, frameshift deletions, and in-frame deletions are observed in cancers such as endometrial cancer, intestinal cancer, and peritoneal cancer.
