Summaries for PLEKHM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PLEKHM1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is essential for bone resorption, and may play a critical role in vesicular transport in the osteoclast. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive osteopetrosis type 6 (OPTB6). Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

Disorders for PLEKHM1 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for PLEKHM1 Gene (611466)


  • Osteopetrosis, autosomal recessive 6 (OPTB6) [MIM:611497]: A rare genetic disease characterized by abnormally dense bone, due to defective resorption of immature bone. Osteopetrosis occurs in two forms: a severe autosomal recessive form occurring in utero, infancy, or childhood, and a benign autosomal dominant form occurring in adolescence or adulthood. Recessive osteopetrosis commonly manifests in early infancy with macrocephaly, feeding difficulties, evolving blindness and deafness, bone marrow failure, severe anemia, and hepatosplenomegaly. Deafness and blindness are generally thought to represent effects of pressure on nerves. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17404618}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
