Summaries for PEX1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PEX1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the AAA ATPase family, a large group of ATPases associated with diverse cellular activities. This protein is cytoplasmic but is often anchored to a peroxisomal membrane where it forms a heteromeric complex and plays a role in the import of proteins into peroxisomes and peroxisome biogenesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with complementation group 1 peroxisomal disorders such as neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy, infantile Refsum disease, and Zellweger syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]

PEX1_HUMAN
  • Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 1A (PBD1A) [MIM:214100]: A fatal peroxisome biogenesis disorder belonging to the Zellweger disease spectrum. PBD1A is an autosomal recessive systemic disorder characterized clinically by severe neurologic dysfunction with profound psychomotor retardation, severe hypotonia and neonatal seizures, craniofacial abnormalities, liver dysfunction, and biochemically by the absence of peroxisomes. Additional features include cardiovascular and skeletal defects, renal cysts, ocular abnormalities, and hearing impairment. Most severely affected individuals with the classic form of the disease (classic Zellweger syndrome) die within the first year of life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:9398847, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9398848, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9539740}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 1B (PBD1B) [MIM:601539]: A peroxisome biogenesis disorder that includes neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD) and infantile Refsum disease (IRD), two milder manifestations of the Zellweger disease spectrum. The clinical course of patients with the NALD and IRD presentation is variable and may include developmental delay, hypotonia, liver dysfunction, sensorineural hearing loss, retinal dystrophy and vision impairment. Children with the NALD presentation may reach their teens, while patients with the IRD presentation may reach adulthood. The clinical conditions are often slowly progressive in particular with respect to loss of hearing and vision. The biochemical abnormalities include accumulation of phytanic acid, very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA), di- and trihydroxycholestanoic acid and pipecolic acid. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11439091, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9398847, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9539740}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Peroxisome biogenesis disorder complementation group 1 (PBD-CG1) [MIM:214100]: A peroxisomal disorder arising from a failure of protein import into the peroxisomal membrane or matrix. The peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBD group) are genetically heterogeneous with at least 14 distinct genetic groups as concluded from complementation studies. Include disorders are: Zellweger syndrome (ZWS), neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD), infantile Refsum disease (IRD), and classical rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata (RCDP). ZWS, NALD and IRD are distinct from RCDP and constitute a clinical continuum of overlapping phenotypes known as the Zellweger spectrum (PBD-ZSS). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19105186, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26387595}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
