Entrez Gene Summary for CFAP57 Gene

  • This protein encoded by this gene belongs to the WD repeat-containing family of proteins, which function in the formation of protein-protein complexes in a variety of biological pathways. This family member is thought to function in craniofacial development, possibly in the fusion of lip and palate. A missense mutation in this gene is associated with Van der Woude syndrome 2. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
