  • The product of this gene contains two coiled-coil domains. The function of this gene is currently unknown. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CCDC78 Gene

CCDC78 (Coiled-Coil Domain Containing 78) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCDC78 include myopathy, centronuclear, 4 and congenital myopathy with internal nuclei and atypical cores.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCDC78 Gene

  • Component of the deuterosome, a structure that promotes de novo centriole amplification in multiciliated cells that can generate more than 100 centrioles. Deuterosome-mediated centriole amplification occurs in terminally differentiated multiciliated cells (G1/0) and not in S phase. Essential for centriole amplification and is required for CEP152 localization to the deuterosome.

Disorders for CCDC78 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for CCDC78 Gene (614666)


  • Myopathy, centronuclear, 4 (CNM4) [MIM:614807]: A congenital muscle disorder characterized by progressive muscular weakness and wasting involving mainly limb girdle, trunk, and neck muscles. It may also affect distal muscles. Weakness may be present during childhood or adolescence or may not become evident until the third decade of life. Ptosis is a frequent clinical feature. The most prominent histopathologic features include high frequency of centrally located nuclei in muscle fibers not secondary to regeneration, radial arrangement of sarcoplasmic strands around the central nuclei, and predominance and hypotrophy of type 1 fibers. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22818856}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
