FunctionEssential for the proper assembly of the glomerular and tubular basement membranes in kidney.
Tissue specificityExpressed in a variety of tissues including vascular endothelium and epidermis. Expressed on erythroid cells, with a higher level of expression in erythroid precursors than on mature erythrocytes.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CD151 are the cause of nephropathy with pretibial epidermolysis bullosa and deafness (NPEBD) [MIM:609057]. NPEBD is characterized by the association of hereditary nephritis, epidermolysis bullosa, deafness, and beta-thalassemia minor.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the tetraspanin (TM4SF) family.
