Summaries for PRDM16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRDM16 Gene

  • The reciprocal translocation t(1;3)(p36;q21) occurs in a subset of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This gene is located near the 1p36.3 breakpoint and has been shown to be specifically expressed in the t(1:3)(p36,q21)-positive MDS/AML. The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc finger transcription factor and contains an N-terminal PR domain. The translocation results in the overexpression of a truncated version of this protein that lacks the PR domain, which may play an important role in the pathogenesis of MDS and AML. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRDM16 Gene

PRDM16 (PR/SET Domain 16) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRDM16 include Left Ventricular Noncompaction 8 and Prdm16-Related Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and FTO Obesity Variant Mechanism. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and transcription coactivator activity. An important paralog of this gene is MECOM.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRDM16 Gene

  • Binds DNA and functions as a transcriptional regulator. Functions in the differentiation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) which is specialized in dissipating chemical energy in the form of heat in response to cold or excess feeding while white adipose tissue (WAT) is specialized in the storage of excess energy and the control of systemic metabolism. Together with CEBPB, regulates the differentiation of myoblastic precursors into brown adipose cells. Functions also as a repressor of TGF-beta signaling. Isoform 4 may regulate granulocytes differentiation.

  • Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1LL (CMD1LL) [MIM:615373]: A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768516}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Left ventricular non-compaction 8 (LVNC8) [MIM:615373]: A disease due to an arrest of myocardial morphogenesis. It is characterized by a hypertrophic left ventricle with deep trabeculations and with poor systolic function, with or without associated left ventricular dilation. In some cases, it is associated with other congenital heart anomalies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768516}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving PRDM16 is found in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Reciprocal translocation t(1;3)(p36;q21). Isoform 4 is specifically expressed in adult T-cell leukemia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11050005, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12557231}.
