Entrez Gene Summary for KLHL41 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the kelch-like family. The encoded protein contains a BACK domain, a BTB/POZ domain, and 5 Kelch repeats. This protein is thought to function in skeletal muscle development and maintenance. Mutations in this gene have been associated with nemaline myopathy (NM), a rare congenital muscle disorder. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2015]

GeneCards Summary for KLHL41 Gene

Disorders for KLHL41 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for KLHL41 Gene (607701)


  • Nemaline myopathy 9 (NEM9) [MIM:615731]: An autosomal recessive form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-like or rod-shaped structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination. NEM9 phenotype is highly variable, ranging from death in infancy due to lack of antigravity movements, to slowly progressive distal muscle weakness with preserved ambulation later in childhood. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
