Summaries for ARMC5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ARMC5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ARM (armadillo/beta-catenin-like repeat) superfamily. The ARM repeat is a tandemly repeated sequence motif with approximately 40 amino acid long. This repeat is implicated in mediating protein-protein interactions. The encoded protein contains seven ARM repeats. Mutations in this gene are associated with primary bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia, which is also known as ACTH-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia 2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]

Disorders for ARMC5 Gene


  • ACTH-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia 2 (AIMAH2) [MIM:615954]: A form of macronodular adrenal hyperplasia characterized by multiple, bilateral, non-pigmented, benign, adrenocortical nodules. It results in excessive production of cortisol leading to ACTH-independent Cushing syndrome. Clinical manifestations of Cushing syndrome include facial and truncal obesity, abdominal striae, muscular weakness, osteoporosis, arterial hypertension, diabetes. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24283224, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24601692, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24905064}.
