Summaries for DNAH5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DNAH5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a dynein protein, which is part of a microtubule-associated motor protein complex consisting of heavy, light, and intermediate chains. This protein is an axonemal heavy chain dynein. It functions as a force-generating protein with ATPase activity, whereby the release of ADP is thought to produce the force-producing power stroke. Mutations in this gene cause primary ciliary dyskinesia type 3, as well as Kartagener syndrome, which are both diseases due to ciliary defects. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for DNAH5 Gene

DNAH5 (Dynein, Axonemal, Heavy Chain 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAH5 include ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 3, with or without situs inversus and primary ciliary dyskinesia 3: dnah5-related primary ciliary dyskinesia. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNAH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNAH5 Gene

  • Force generating protein of respiratory cilia. Produces force towards the minus ends of microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP. Required for structural and functional integrity of the cilia of ependymal cells lining the brain ventricles

  • Q8TE73
  • Dynein heavy chains probably consist of an N-terminal stem (which binds cargo and interacts with other dynein components), and the head or motor domain. The motor contains six tandemly-linked AAA domains in the head, which form a ring. A stalk-like structure (formed by two of the coiled coil domains) protrudes between AAA 4 and AAA 5 and terminates in a microtubule-binding site. A seventh domain may also contribute to this ring; it is not clear whether the N-terminus or the C-terminus forms this extra domain. There are four well-conserved and two non-conserved ATPase sites, one per AAA domain. Probably only one of these (within AAA 1) actually hydrolyzes ATP, the others may serve a regulatory function
  • Belongs to the dynein heavy chain family.

Disorders for DNAH5 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for DNAH5 Gene (603335)


  • Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, 3 (CILD3) [MIM:608644]: A disorder characterized by abnormalities of motile cilia. Respiratory infections leading to chronic inflammation and bronchiectasis are recurrent, due to defects in the respiratory cilia; reduced fertility is often observed in male patients due to abnormalities of sperm tails. Half of the patients exhibit randomization of left-right body asymmetry and situs inversus, due to dysfunction of monocilia at the embryonic node. Primary ciliary dyskinesia associated with situs inversus is referred to as Kartagener syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11062149, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16627867, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25186273}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Kartagener syndrome (KTGS) [MIM:244400]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the association of primary ciliary dyskinesia with situs inversus. Clinical features include recurrent respiratory infections, bronchiectasis, infertility, and lateral transposition of the viscera of the thorax and abdomen. The situs inversus is most often total, although it can be partial in some cases (isolated dextrocardia or isolated transposition of abdominal viscera). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11788826}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
