Summaries for PEX14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PEX14 Gene

  • This gene encodes an essential component of the peroxisomal import machinery. The protein is integrated into peroxisome membranes with its C-terminus exposed to the cytosol, and interacts with the cytosolic receptor for proteins containing a PTS1 peroxisomal targeting signal. The protein also functions as a transcriptional corepressor and interacts with a histone deacetylase. A mutation in this gene results in one form of Zellweger syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PEX14 Gene

PEX14 (Peroxisomal Biogenesis Factor 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PEX14 include Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorder 13A and Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Peroxisome. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and microtubule binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PEX14 Gene

  • Peroxisome membrane protein that is an essential component of the peroxisomal import machinery. Functions as a docking factor for the predominantly cytoplasmic PTS1 receptor (PEX5). Plays a key role for peroxisome movement through a direct interaction with tubulin.

  • Peroxisome biogenesis disorder 13A (PBD13A) [MIM:614887]: A fatal peroxisome biogenesis disorder belonging to the Zellweger disease spectrum and clinically characterized 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:15146459}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Peroxisome biogenesis disorder complementation group K (PBD-CGK) [MIM:614887]: 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:15146459}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
