Entrez Gene Summary for FYCO1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that contains a RUN domain, FYVE-type zinc finger domain and Golgi dynamics (GOLD) domain. The encoded protein plays a role in microtubule plus end-directed transport of autophagic vesicles through interactions with the small GTPase Rab7, phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate (PI3P) and the autophagosome marker LC3. Mutations in this gene are a cause of autosomal recessive congenital cataract-2 (CATC2). [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

  • Cataract 18 (CTRCT18) [MIM:610019]: An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye becoming evident at birth or in infancy. It frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. In general, the more posteriorly located and dense an opacity, the greater the impact on visual function. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21636066}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Pathogenic mutations in FYCO1 can affect intracellular transport of autophagocytic vesicles from the perinuclear area to the periphery, leading to an accumulation of large numbers of vesicles and hence loss of lens transparency (PubMed:21636066). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21636066}.
