Summaries for ALMS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALMS1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein containing a large tandem-repeat domain as well as additional low complexity regions. The encoded protein functions in microtubule organization, particularly in the formation and maintanance of cilia. Mutations in this gene cause Alstrom syndrome. There is a pseudogene for this gene located adjacent in the same region of chromosome 2. Alternative splice variants have been described but their full length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ALMS1 Gene

ALMS1 (Alstrom Syndrome Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALMS1 include alstrom syndrome. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. An important paralog of this gene is C10orf90.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALMS1 Gene

  • Involved in PCM1-dependent intracellular transport. Required, directly or indirectly, for the localization of NCAPD2 to the proximal ends of centrioles. Required for proper formation and/or maintenance of primary cilia (PC), microtubule-based structures that protrude from the surface of epithelial cells.
