Entrez Gene Summary for FAM134B Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cis-Golgi transmembrane protein that may be necessary for the long-term survival of nociceptive and autonomic ganglion neurons. Mutations in this gene are a cause of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type IIB (HSAN IIB), and this gene may also play a role in susceptibility to vascular dementia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]

Disorders for FAM134B Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for FAM134B Gene (613114)


  • Neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 2B (HSAN2B) [MIM:613115]: A form of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and by sensory and/or autonomic abnormalities. HSAN2B is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by impairment of pain, temperature and touch sensation. Onset occurs in the first or second decade, with impaired nociception and progressive mutilating ulceration of the hands and feet with osteomyelitis and acroosteolysis. Amputations of the hands and feet are common. Autonomic dysfunction includes hyperhidrosis, urinary incontinence, and slow pupillary light response. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19838196}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
