Summaries for CCDC8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCDC8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a coiled-coil domain-containing protein. The encoded protein functions as a cofactor required for p53-mediated apoptosis following DNA damage, and may also play a role in growth through interactions with the cytoskeletal adaptor protein obscurin-like 1. Mutations in this gene are a cause of 3M syndrome-3 (3M3). [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CCDC8 Gene

CCDC8 (Coiled-Coil Domain Containing 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCDC8 include 3-m syndrome 3 and 3-m syndrome, ccdc8-related.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCDC8 Gene

  • Core component of the 3M complex, a complex required to regulate microtubule dynamics and genome integrity. It is unclear how the 3M complex regulates microtubules, it could act by controlling the level of a microtubule stabilizer (PubMed:24793695, PubMed:24793696). Required for localization of CUL7 to the centrosome (PubMed:24793695).
