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. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CEP41 Gene

CEP41 (Centrosomal Protein 41) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEP41 include Joubert Syndrome 15 and Joubert Syndrome With Ocular Anomalies. Among its related pathways are Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition and Organelle biogenesis and maintenance.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP41 Gene

  • Required during ciliogenesis for tubulin glutamylation in cilium. Probably acts by participating in the transport of TTLL6, a tubulin polyglutamylase, between the basal body and the cilium.

  • 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.
