Summaries for LITAF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LITAF Gene

  • Lipopolysaccharide is a potent stimulator of monocytes and macrophages, causing secretion of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and other inflammatory mediators. This gene encodes lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF-alpha factor, which is a DNA-binding protein and can mediate the TNF-alpha expression by direct binding to the promoter region of the TNF-alpha gene. The transcription of this gene is induced by tumor suppressor p53 and has been implicated in the p53-induced apoptotic pathway. Mutations in this gene cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1C (CMT1C) and may be involved in the carcinogenesis of extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD). Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]

GeneCards Summary for LITAF Gene

LITAF (Lipopolysaccharide Induced TNF Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LITAF include Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Type 1C and Charcot-Marie-Tooth Hereditary Neuropathy. Among its related pathways are NF-kappaB Signaling and Lysosome. GO annotations related to this gene include signal transducer activity and WW domain binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDIP1.

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 1C (CMT1C) [MIM:601098]: A dominant demyelinating form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a disorder of the peripheral nervous system, characterized by progressive weakness and atrophy, initially of the peroneal muscles and later of the distal muscles of the arms. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is classified in two main groups on the basis of electrophysiologic properties and histopathology: primary peripheral demyelinating neuropathies (designated CMT1 when they are dominantly inherited) and primary peripheral axonal neuropathies (CMT2). Demyelinating neuropathies are characterized by severely reduced nerve conduction velocities (less than 38 m/sec), segmental demyelination and remyelination with onion bulb formations on nerve biopsy, slowly progressive distal muscle atrophy and weakness, absent deep tendon reflexes, and hollow feet. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12525712, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15776429, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15786462}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Defects in LITAF may be involved in extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) carcinogenesis. EMPD is a cancerous disease representing about 8% of all malignant skin cancers; it usually appears in the anogenital area and can be fatal by metastasizing to internal organs when left untreated for a long time. The clinical features are usually those of eczematous eruptions with weeping and crust formation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15197774}.
