Entrez Gene Summary for FXYD6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the FXYD family of transmembrane proteins. This particular protein encodes phosphohippolin, which likely affects the activity of Na,K-ATPase. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described. Related pseudogenes have been identified on chromosomes 10 and X. Read-through transcripts have been observed between this locus and the downstream sodium/potassium-transporting ATPase subunit gamma (FXYD2, GeneID 486) locus.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]

GeneCards Summary for FXYD6 Gene

FXYD6 (FXYD Domain Containing Ion Transport Regulator 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FXYD6 include Psychotic Disorder and Schizophrenia. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and sodium channel regulator activity. An important paralog of this gene is FXYD6-FXYD2.

  • Schizophrenia 2 (SCZD2) [MIM:603342]: A complex, multifactorial psychotic disorder or group of disorders characterized by disturbances in the form and content of thought (e.g. delusions, hallucinations), in mood (e.g. inappropriate affect), in sense of self and relationship to the external world (e.g. loss of ego boundaries, withdrawal), and in behavior (e.g bizarre or apparently purposeless behavior). Although it affects emotions, it is distinguished from mood disorders in which such disturbances are primary. Similarly, there may be mild impairment of cognitive function, and it is distinguished from the dementias in which disturbed cognitive function is considered primary. Some patients manifest schizophrenic as well as bipolar disorder symptoms and are often given the diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17357072}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
