Entrez Gene Summary for SH3TC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with two N-terminal Src homology 3 (SH3) domains and 10 tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) motifs, and is a member of a small gene family. The gene product has been proposed to be an adapter or docking molecule. Mutations in this gene result in autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4C, a childhood-onset neurodegenerative disease characterized by demyelination of motor and sensory neurons.

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 4C (CMT4C) [MIM:601596]: A recessive demyelinating form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a disorder of the peripheral nervous system, characterized by progressive weakness and atrophy, initially of the peroneal muscles and later of the distal muscles of the arms. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is classified in two main groups on the basis of electrophysiologic properties and histopathology: primary peripheral demyelinating neuropathies (designated CMT1 when they are dominantly inherited) and primary peripheral axonal neuropathies (CMT2). Demyelinating neuropathies are characterized by severely reduced nerve conduction velocities (less than 38 m/sec), segmental demyelination and remyelination with onion bulb formations on nerve biopsy, slowly progressive distal muscle atrophy and weakness, absent deep tendon reflexes, and hollow feet. By convention autosomal recessive forms of demyelinating Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease are designated CMT4. CMT4C is characterized by onset in childhood, early-onset scoliosis and a distinct Schwann cell pathology. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14574644}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mononeuropathy of the median nerve mild (MNMN) [MIM:613353]: A disease characterized by median nerve mononeuropathy at the wrist. The clinical presentation ranges from a mild phenotype, consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome, to a severe median nerve mononeuropathy at the wrist associated with evidence of a more widespread axonal polyneuropathy. The latter phenotype is similar to that of patients with hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20220177}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
