Summaries for MAGED2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAGED2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the MAGED gene family. The MAGED genes are clustered on chromosome Xp11. This gene is located in Xp11.2, a hot spot for X-linked intellectual disability (XLID). Mutations in this gene cause a form of transient antenatal Bartter's syndrome. This gene may also be involved in several types of cancer, including breast cancer and melanoma. The protein encoded by this gene is progressively recruited from the cytoplasm to the nucleoplasm during the interphase and after nucleolar stress and is thus thought to play a role in cell cycle regulation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2017]

BARTS5 is an antenatal form beginning in utero with marked fetal polyuria that leads to polyhydramnios and premature delivery. It is characterized by severe but transient symptoms that can resolve with age. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:27120771}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
