Summaries for IFT172 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IFT172 Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of the intraflagellar transport subcomplex IFT-B. Subcomplexes IFT-A and IFT-B are necessary for ciliary assembly and maintenance. Mutations in this gene have been associated with skeletal ciliopathies, with or without polydactyly, such as such short-rib thoracic dysplasias 1, 9 or 10. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]

GeneCards Summary for IFT172 Gene

IFT172 (Intraflagellar Transport 172) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFT172 include short-rib thoracic dysplasia 10 with or without polydactyly and short-rib thoracic dysplasia 9 with or without polydactyly. Among its related pathways are Hedgehog signaling events mediated by Gli proteins.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IFT172 Gene

  • Required for the maintenance and formation of cilia. Plays an indirect role in hedgehog (Hh) signaling, cilia being required for all activity of the hedgehog pathway (By similarity).

Disorders for IFT172 Gene

  • Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 10 with or without polydactyly (SRTD10) [MIM:615630]: A form of short-rib thoracic dysplasia, a group of autosomal recessive ciliopathies that are characterized by a constricted thoracic cage, short ribs, shortened tubular bones, and a trident appearance of the acetabular roof. Polydactyly is variably present. Non-skeletal involvement can include cleft lip/palate as well as anomalies of major organs such as the brain, eye, heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, intestines, and genitalia. Some forms of the disease are lethal in the neonatal period due to respiratory insufficiency secondary to a severely restricted thoracic cage, whereas others are compatible with life. Disease spectrum encompasses Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (Jeune syndrome), Mainzer-Saldino syndrome, and short rib-polydactyly syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24140113}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
