Summaries for MKKS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MKKS Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which shares sequence similarity with other members of the type II chaperonin family. The encoded protein is a centrosome-shuttling protein and plays an important role in cytokinesis. This protein also interacts with other type II chaperonin members to form a complex known as the BBSome, which involves ciliary membrane biogenesis. This protein is encoded by a downstream open reading frame (dORF). Several upstream open reading frames (uORFs) have been identified, which repress the translation of the dORF, and two of which can encode small mitochondrial membrane proteins. Mutations in this gene have been observed in patients with Bardet-Biedl syndrome type 6, also known as McKusick-Kaufman syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

Localization for MKKS Gene

Subcellular locations from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MKKS Gene

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasm, cytosol. Note=The majority of the protein resides within the pericentriolar material (PCM), a proteinaceous tube surrounding centrioles. During interphase, the protein is confined to the lateral surfaces of the PCM but during mitosis it relocalizes throughout the PCM and is found at the intercellular bridge. The MKSS protein is highly mobile and rapidly shuttles between the cytosol and centrosome.

  • McKusick-Kaufman syndrome (MKKS) [MIM:236700]: Autosomal recessive developmental disorder. It is characterized by hydrometrocolpos, postaxial polydactyly and congenital heart defects. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10802661}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Bardet-Biedl syndrome 6 (BBS6) [MIM:605231]: A syndrome characterized by usually severe pigmentary retinopathy, early-onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation. Secondary features include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. Bardet-Biedl syndrome inheritance is autosomal recessive, but three mutated alleles (two at one locus, and a third at a second locus) may be required for clinical manifestation of some forms of the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10973238, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10973251, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11179009, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11567139, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12107442, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12677556, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12920096, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15666242, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15770229, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21344540, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22152675}.
