Summaries for ARMC4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARMC4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains ten Armadillo repeat motifs (ARMs) and one HEAT repeat, and is thought to be involved in ciliary and flagellar movement. This protein has been shown to localize to the ciliary axonemes and at the ciliary base of respiratory cells. Studies indicate that mutations in this gene cause partial outer dynein arm (ODA) defects in respiratory cilia. The cilia of cells with mutations in this gene displayed either reduced ciliary beat frequency and amplitude, or, complete immotility. Some individuals with primary ciliary dyskensia (PCD) have been shown to have mutations in this gene. PCD is characterized by chronic airway disease and left/right body asymmetry defects. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]

  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 23 (CILD23) [MIM:615451]: A disorder characterized by abnormalities of motile cilia. Respiratory infections leading to chronic inflammation and bronchiectasis are recurrent, due to defects in the respiratory cilia. Patients may exhibit randomization of left-right body asymmetry and situs inversus, due to dysfunction of monocilia at the embryonic node. Primary ciliary dyskinesia associated with situs inversus is referred to as Kartagener syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23849778, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25186273}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Contrary to the wild-type protein, disease-causing variant Trp-927 is unable to rescue the phenotype (randomization of heart looping) of the morpholino knockdown of the orthologous protein in zebrafish (PubMed:23849778). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23849778}.
