Summaries for BCS1L Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BCS1L Gene

  • This gene encodes a homolog of the S. cerevisiae bcs1 protein which is involved in the assembly of complex III of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. The encoded protein does not contain a mitochondrial targeting sequence but experimental studies confirm that it is imported into mitochondria. Mutations in this gene are associated with mitochondrial complex III deficiency and the GRACILE syndrome. Several alternatively spliced transcripts encoding two different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]

GeneCards Summary for BCS1L Gene

  • GRACILE syndrome (GRACILE) [MIM:603358]: GRACILE stands for growth retardation, aminoaciduria, cholestasis, iron overload, lactic acidosis, and early death. It is a recessively inherited lethal disease characterized by fetal growth retardation, lactic acidosis, aminoaciduria, cholestasis, and abnormalities in iron metabolism. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12215968, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17314340}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mitochondrial complex III deficiency, nuclear 1 (MC3DN1) [MIM:124000]: A disorder of the mitochondrial respiratory chain resulting in a highly variable phenotype depending on which tissues are affected. Clinical features include mitochondrial encephalopathy, psychomotor retardation, ataxia, severe failure to thrive, liver dysfunction, renal tubulopathy, muscle weakness and exercise intolerance. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11528392, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12910490, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17314340, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17403714, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19162478, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22991165}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Bjoernstad syndrome (BJS) [MIM:262000]: An autosomal recessive disease characterized by congenital sensorineural hearing loss and twisted hairs (pili torti). Pili torti is a condition in which the hair shafts are flattened at irregular intervals and twisted 180 degrees from the normal axis, making the hair extremely brittle. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17314340, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24172246}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
