Summaries for MKS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MKS1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene localizes to the basal body and is required for formation of the primary cilium in ciliated epithelial cells. Mutations in this gene result in Meckel syndrome type 1 and in Bardet-Biedl syndrome type 13. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

GeneCards Summary for MKS1 Gene

MKS1 (Meckel Syndrome, Type 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MKS1 include bardet-biedl syndrome 13 and meckel syndrome 1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MKS1 Gene

  • Component of the tectonic-like complex, a complex localized at the transition zone of primary cilia and acting as a barrier that prevents diffusion of transmembrane proteins between the cilia and plasma membranes. Involved in centrosome migration to the apical cell surface during early ciliogenesis. Required for ciliary structure and function, including a role in regulating length and appropriate number through modulating centrosome duplication. Required for cell branching morphology.

MKS1_HUMAN
  • Meckel syndrome 1 (MKS1) [MIM:249000]: A disorder characterized by a combination of renal cysts and variably associated features including developmental anomalies of the central nervous system (typically encephalocele), hepatic ductal dysplasia and cysts, and polydactyly. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16415886, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19466712}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Bardet-Biedl syndrome 13 (BBS13) [MIM:615990]: 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:18327255}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
