Summaries for SNX10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SNX10 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the sorting nexin family. Members of this family contain a phox (PX) domain, which is a phosphoinositide binding domain, and are involved in intracellular trafficking. This protein does not contain a coiled coil region, like some family members. This gene may play a role in regulating endosome homeostasis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SNX10 Gene

SNX10 (Sorting Nexin 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SNX10 include osteopetrosis, autosomal recessive 8 and osteopetrosis, autosomal recessive 4. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase binding and 1-phosphatidylinositol binding. An important paralog of this gene is SNX3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SNX10 Gene

  • Probable phosphoinositide-binding protein involved in protein sorting and membrane trafficking in endosomes. Plays a role in cilium biogenesis through regulation of the transport and the localization of proteins to the cilium. Required for the localization to the cilium of V-ATPase subunit ATP6V1D and ATP6V0D1, and RAB8A. Involved in osteoclast differentiation and therefore bone resorption.

  • Osteopetrosis, autosomal recessive 8 (OPTB8) [MIM:615085]: 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. OPTB8 is clinically characterized by dense bones with no distinction between outer and inner plates, due to extensive encroachment of cortical bone into the medullary space, increased head circumference, broad open fontanelle, frontal bossing, and hepatosplenomegaly. Osteoclasts number is low and their bone resorptive capacity is impaired. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22499339, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23123320, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23280965}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
