Summaries for B9D2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for B9D2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a B9 domain protein, which are exclusively found in ciliated organisms. The gene is upregulated during mucociliary differentiation, and the encoded protein localizes to basal bodies and cilia. Disrupting expression of this gene results in ciliogenesis defects. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for B9D2 Gene

B9D2 (B9 Protein Domain 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with B9D2 include Meckel Syndrome 10 and Meckel Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Mitotic Metaphase and Anaphase and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include gamma-tubulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is B9D1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for B9D2 Gene

  • Component of the tectonic-like complex, a complex localized at the transition zone of primary cilia and acting as a barrier that prevents diffusion of transmembrane proteins between the cilia and plasma membranes.
