Entrez Gene Summary for ANO5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the anoctamin family of transmembrane proteins. The encoded protein is likely a calcium activated chloride channel. Mutations in this gene have been associated with gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for ANO5 Gene

    • The term anoctamin was coined because these channels are anion selective and have eight (OCT) transmembrane segments. There is some dissatisfaction in the field with the Ano nomenclature because it is not certain that all the members of this family are anion channels or have the 8-transmembrane topology

Disorders for ANO5 Gene

(3) OMIM Diseases for ANO5 Gene (608662)


  • Gnathodiaphyseal dysplasia (GDD) [MIM:166260]: Rare skeletal syndrome characterized by bone fragility, sclerosis of tubular bones, and cemento-osseous lesions of the jawbone. Patients experience frequent bone fractures caused by trivial accidents in childhood; however the fractures heal normally without bone deformity. The jaw lesions replace the tooth-bearing segments of the maxilla and mandible with fibrous connective tissues, including various amounts of cementum-like calcified mass, sometimes causing facial deformities. Patients also have a propensity for jaw infection and often suffer from purulent osteomyelitis-like symptoms, such as swelling of and pus discharge from the gums, mobility of the teeth, insufficient healing after tooth extraction and exposure of the lesions into the oral cavity. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15124103}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2L (LGMD2L) [MIM:611307]: An autosomal recessive degenerative myopathy characterized by proximal weakness, weakness of the hip and shoulder girdles and prominent asymmetrical quadriceps femoris and biceps brachii atrophy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20096397}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Miyoshi muscular dystrophy 3 (MMD3) [MIM:613319]: A late-onset muscular dystrophy characterized by distal muscle weakness of the lower limbs, calf muscle discomfort and weakness, quadriceps atrophy. Muscle weakness and atrophy may be asymmetric. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20096397, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22499103}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
