Summaries for EXPH5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EXPH5 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the synaptotagmin-like protein (Slp) family lacking a C2 domain. It contains an N-terminal synaptotagmin-like homology domain (SHD), and is a ras-related protein Rab-27B effector protein. This protein is thought to be involved in exosome secretion and intracellular vesicle trafficking. Reduced expression of this gene results in keratin filament defects. Mutations in this gene have been associated with some cases of epidermolysis bullosa, an inherited skin fragility disorder. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]

  • Epidermolysis bullosa, non-specific, autosomal recessive (EBNS) [MIM:615028]: A skin disease characterized by blistering of skin and mucosae, following minimal pressure or trauma. Various clinical types with different severity are recognized, ranging from severe mutilating forms to mild forms with limited and localized scarring, and less frequent extracutaneous manifestations. EBNS clinical features mainly comprise trauma-induced scale crusts and intermittent skin blistering. Some of the crusted areas are hemorrhagic and accompanied by occasional bruising. Most lesions clear over several weeks to leave slightly atrophic scars and moderate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23176819}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
