Entrez Gene summary for BBS4 Gene:
This gene is a member of the Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) gene family. Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an autosomal
recessive disorder characterized by severe pigmentary retinopathy, obesity, polydactyly, renal malformation and
mental retardation. The proteins encoded by BBS gene family members are structurally diverse. The similar
phenotypes exhibited by mutations in BBS gene family members are likely due to the protein's shared roles in
cilia formation and function. Many BBS proteins localize to the basal bodies, ciliary axonemes, and
pericentriolar regions of cells. BBS proteins may also be involved in intracellular trafficking via
microtubule-related transport. The protein encoded by this gene has sequence similarity to O-linked
N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) transferases in plants and archaebacteria and in human forms a multi-protein
'BBSome' complex with six other BBS proteins. Alternative splice variants have been described but their predicted
protein products have not been experimentally verified.(provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009)

GeneCards Summary for BBS4 Gene:
BBS4 (Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with BBS4 include bardet-biedl syndrome 4, and bbs4-related bardet-biedl syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include microtubule motor activity and alpha-tubulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is TTC8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: BBS4_HUMAN, Q96RK4
Function: The BBSome complex is thought to function as a coat complex required for sorting of specific membrane
proteins to the primary cilia. The BBSome complex is required for ciliogenesis but is dispensable for centriolar
satellite function. This ciliogenic function is mediated in part by the Rab8 GDP/GTP exchange factor, which
localizes to the basal body and contacts the BBSome. Rab8(GTP) enters the primary cilium and promotes extension
of the ciliary membrane. Firstly the BBSome associates with the ciliary membrane and binds to RAB3IP/Rabin8, the
guanosyl exchange factor (GEF) for Rab8 and then the Rab8-GTP localizes to the cilium and promotes docking and
fusion of carrier vesicles to the base of the ciliary membrane. The BBSome complex, together with the LTZL1,
controls SMO ciliary trafficking and contributes to the sonic hedgehog (SHH) pathway regulation. Required for
proper BBSome complex assembly and its ciliary localization. Required for microtubule anchoring at the centrosome
but not for microtubule nucleation. May be required for the dynein-mediated transport of pericentriolar proteins
to the centrosome

  • Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4 (BBS4) [MIM:209900]: A syndrome characterized by usually severe pigmentary
    retinopathy, early-onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation.
    Secondary features include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. Bardet-Biedl syndrome
    inheritance is autosomal recessive, but three mutated alleles (two at one locus, and a third at a second locus)
    may be required for clinical manifestation of some forms of the disease. Note=The disease is caused by mutations
    affecting the gene represented in this entry
