Entrez Gene Summary for AMER1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene upregulates trancriptional activation by the Wilms tumor protein and interacts with many other proteins, including CTNNB1, APC, AXIN1, and AXIN2. Defects in this gene are a cause of osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis (OSCS). [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for AMER1 Gene

AMER1 (APC Membrane Recruitment Protein 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AMER1 include osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis and wilms tumor. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Wnt / Hedgehog / Notch. GO annotations related to this gene include beta-catenin binding and phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate binding. An important paralog of this gene is AMER2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AMER1 Gene

  • Regulator of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Acts by specifically binding phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2), translocating to the cell membrane and interacting with key regulators of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway, such as components of the beta-catenin destruction complex. Acts both as a positive and negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway, depending on the context: acts as a positive regulator by promoting LRP6 phosphorylation. Also acts as a negative regulator by acting as a scaffold protein for the beta-catenin destruction complex and promoting stabilization of Axin at the cell membrane. Promotes CTNNB1 ubiquitination and degradation. Involved in kidney development.

  • Osteopathia striata with cranial sclerosis (OSCS) [MIM:300373]: An X-linked dominant sclerosing bone dysplasia that presents in females with macrocephaly, cleft palate, facial palsy, conductive hearing loss, mild learning disabilities, sclerosis of the long bones and skull. Longitudinal striations are visible on radiographs of the long bones, pelvis, and scapulae (osteopathia striata). In males this entity is usually associated with fetal or neonatal lethality. Occasional surviving males have, in addition to hyperostosis, cardiac, intestinal, and genitourinary malformations. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19079258}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
