Summaries for LYST Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LYST Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that regulates intracellular protein trafficking in endosomes, and may be involved in pigmentation. Mutations in this gene are associated with Chediak-Higashi syndrome, a lysosomal storage disorder. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, though the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2013]

GeneCards Summary for LYST Gene

LYST (Lysosomal Trafficking Regulator) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LYST include Chediak-Higashi Syndrome and Attenuated Chédiak-Higashi Syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and phospholipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is WDFY3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LYST Gene

  • May be required for sorting endosomal resident proteins into late multivesicular endosomes by a mechanism involving microtubules.

  • Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) [MIM:214500]: A rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hypopigmentation, severe immunologic deficiency, a bleeding tendency, neurologic abnormalities, abnormal intracellular transport to and from the lysosome, and giant inclusion bodies in a variety of cell types. Most patients die at an early age unless they receive an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (SCT). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11857544, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24521565}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
