Summaries for CLN8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLN8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transmembrane protein belonging to a family of proteins containing TLC domains, which are postulated to function in lipid synthesis, transport, or sensing. The protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and may recycle between the ER and ER-Golgi intermediate compartment. Mutations in this gene are associated with progressive epilepsy with mental retardation (EMPR), which is a subtype of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). Patients with mutations in this gene have altered levels of sphingolipid and phospholipids in the brain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • Ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 8 (CLN8) [MIM:600143]: A form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis with onset in childhood. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses are progressive neurodegenerative, lysosomal storage diseases characterized by intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent liposomal material, and clinically by seizures, dementia, visual loss, and/or cerebral atrophy. The lipopigment patterns observed most often in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 8 comprise mixed combinations of granular, curvilinear, and fingerprint profiles. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15024724, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16570191, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19201763, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19431184, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19807737, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21990111, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26443629}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 8, Northern epilepsy variant (CLN8NE) [MIM:610003]: A form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis clinically characterized by epilepsy that presents between 5 and 10 years of age with frequent tonic-clonic seizures followed by progressive mental retardation. Visual loss is not a prominent feature. Intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent material results in curvilinear and granular profiles on ultrastructural analysis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10508524, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21990111}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
