Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SPECC1L Gene
This gene encodes a coiled-coil domain containing protein. The encoded protein may play a critical role in actin-cytoskeletal reorganization during facial morphogenesis. Mutations in this gene are a cause of oblique facial clefting-1. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. A read-through transcript composed of SPECC1L (sperm antigen with calponin homology and coiled-coil domains 1-like) and the downstream ADORA2A (adenosine A2a receptor) gene sequence has been identified, but it is thought to be non-coding.

GeneCards Summary for SPECC1L Gene
SPECC1L (Sperm Antigen With Calponin Homology And Coiled-Coil Domains 1-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPECC1L include facial clefting, oblique, 1 and opitz gbbb syndrome, type ii. GO annotations related to this gene include protein dimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is SMTNL2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SPECC1L Gene
Involved in cytokinesis and spindle organization. May play a role in actin cytoskeleton organization and microtubule stabilization and hence required for proper cell adhesion and migration.
