Summaries for KIAA0226 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIAA0226 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a negative regulator of autophagy and endocytic trafficking and controls endosome maturation. This protein contains two conserved domains, an N-terminal RUN domain and a C-terminal DUF4206 domain. The RUN domain is involved in Ras-like GTPase signaling, and the DUF4206 domain contains a diacylglycerol (DAG) binding-like motif. Mutation in this gene results in deletion of the DAG binding-like motif and causes a recessive ataxia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

GeneCards Summary for KIAA0226 Gene

KIAA0226 (KIAA0226) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIAA0226 include spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive 15 and autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia-epilepsy-intellectual disability syndrome due to kiaa0226 deficiency. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis and Autophagy. An important paralog of this gene is KIAA0226L.

  • Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive, 15 (SCAR15) [MIM:615705]: Spinocerebellar ataxia defines a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCAR15 patients manifest cerebellar ataxia in early childhood and delayed motor development with delayed walking. Additional features include dysarthria, upper limb involvement, abnormal eye movements, and hyporeflexia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20826435}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
