Summaries for SAMD9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SAMD9 Gene

  • This gene encodes a sterile alpha motif domain-containing protein. The encoded protein localizes to the cytoplasm and may play a role in regulating cell proliferation and apoptosis. Mutations in this gene are the cause of normophosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SAMD9 Gene

SAMD9 (Sterile Alpha Motif Domain Containing 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SAMD9 include tumoral calcinosis, familial, normophosphatemic and normocalcemic tumoral calcinosis. An important paralog of this gene is SAMD9L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SAMD9 Gene

  • May play a role in the inflammatory response to tissue injury and the control of extra-osseous calcification, acting as a downstream target of TNF-alpha signaling. Involved in the regulation of EGR1, in coordination with RGL2.

Disorders for SAMD9 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for SAMD9 Gene (610456)


  • Tumoral calcinosis, normophosphatemic, familial (NFTC) [MIM:610455]: An uncommon, life-threatening disorder characterized by progressive deposition of calcified masses in cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues. Serum phosphate levels are normal. Clinical features include painful calcified ulcerative lesions and massive calcium deposition in the mid- and lower dermis, severe skin and bone infections, erythematous papular skin eruption in infancy, conjunctivitis, and gingivitis. NFTC shows a striking resemblance to acquired dystrophic calcinosis, in which tissue calcification occurs as a consequence of tissue injury/inflammation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16960814, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18094730}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
