Summaries for DNAJC5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DNAJC5 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the J protein family. J proteins function in many cellular processes by regulating the ATPase activity of 70 kDa heat shock proteins. The encoded protein plays a role in membrane trafficking and protein folding, and has been shown to have anti-neurodegenerative properties. The encoded protein is known to play a role in cystic fibrosis and Huntington's disease. A pseudogene of this gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 8. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DNAJC5 Gene

DNAJC5 (DnaJ (Hsp40) Homolog, Subfamily C, Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAJC5 include ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 4, parry type and cln4 disease. Among its related pathways are Translational Control and Development Slit-Robo signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include glycoprotein binding and ATP-dependent protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is DNAJB7.

  • Ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 4B (CLN4B) [MIM:162350]: An adult-onset neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. 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. CLN4B has no visual involvement and is characterized by seizures and other neurologic symptoms. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21820099, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22073189, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22235333, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22978711}.
