Entrez Gene Summary for C8orf37 Gene

  • This gene encodes a ubiquitously expressed protein of unknown function. It has high levels of mRNA expression in the brain, heart, and retina and the protein co-localizes with polyglutamylated tubulin at the base of the primary cilium in human retinal pigment epithelial cells. Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal recessive cone-rod dystrophy (arCRD) and retinitis pigmentosa (arRP). [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

Disorders for C8orf37 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for C8orf37 Gene (614477)


  • Cone-rod dystrophy 16 (CORD16) [MIM:614500]: An inherited retinal dystrophy characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, predominantly in the macular region, and initial loss of cone photoreceptors followed by rod degeneration. This leads to decreased visual acuity and sensitivity in the central visual field, followed by loss of peripheral vision. Severe loss of vision occurs earlier than in retinitis pigmentosa. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22177090}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Retinitis pigmentosa 64 (RP64) [MIM:614500]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22177090}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
