Entrez Gene Summary for ERLIN2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the SPFH domain-containing family of lipid raft-associated proteins. The encoded protein is localized to lipid rafts of the endoplasmic reticulum and plays a critical role in inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) signaling by mediating ER-associated degradation of activated IP3 receptors. Mutations in this gene are a cause of spastic paraplegia-18 (SPG18). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.

Disorders for ERLIN2 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for ERLIN2 Gene (611605)


  • Spastic paraplegia 18, autosomal recessive (SPG18) [MIM:611225]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. SPG18 is a severe form with onset in early childhood. Most affected individuals have severe psychomotor retardation. Some may develop significant joint contractures. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21330303}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
