Entrez Gene Summary for CEP41 Gene

  • This gene encodes a centrosomal and microtubule-binding protein which is predicted to have two coiled-coil domains and a rhodanese domain. In human retinal pigment epithelial cells the protein localized to centrioles and cilia. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Joubert Syndrome 15; an autosomal recessive ciliopathy and neurological disorder. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

Disorders for CEP41 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for CEP41 Gene (610523)


  • Joubert syndrome 15 (JBTS15) [MIM:614464]: An autosomal recessive disorder presenting with cerebellar ataxia, oculomotor apraxia, hypotonia, neonatal breathing abnormalities and psychomotor delay. Neuroradiologically, it is characterized by cerebellar vermian hypoplasia/aplasia, thickened and reoriented superior cerebellar peduncles, and an abnormally large interpeduncular fossa, giving the appearance of a molar tooth on transaxial slices (molar tooth sign). Additional variable features include retinal dystrophy, renal disease, liver fibrosis and polydactyly. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22246503}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Genetic variations in CEP41 may be associated with susceptibility to autism.
