Summaries for BRAT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRAT1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this ubiquitously expressed gene interacts with the tumor suppressing BRCA1 (breast cancer 1) protein and and the ATM (ataxia telangiectasia mutated) protein. ATM is thought to be a master controller of cell cycle checkpoint signalling pathways that are required for cellular responses to DNA damage such as double-strand breaks that are induced by ionizing radiation and complexes with BRCA1 in the multi-protein complex BASC (BRAC1-associated genome surveillance complex). The protein encoded by this gene is thought to play a role in the DNA damage pathway regulated by BRCA1 and ATM. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

  • Rigidity and multifocal seizure syndrome, lethal neonatal (RMFSL) [MIM:614498]: A lethal, neonatal, neurologic disorder characterized by episodic jerking that is apparent in utero, lack of psychomotor development, axial and limb rigidity, frequent multifocal seizures, and dysautonomia. At birth, affected individuals have small heads, overlapping cranial sutures, small or absent fontanels, and depressed frontal bones. Infants show poorly responsive focal jerks of the tongue, face and arms in a nearly continuous sequence throughout life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22279524}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
