Summaries for SPG11 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SPG11 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a potential transmembrane protein that is phosphorylated upon DNA damage. Defects in this gene are a cause of spastic paraplegia type 11 (SPG11). Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2009]

Disorders for SPG11 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for SPG11 Gene (610844)


  • Spastic paraplegia 11, autosomal recessive (SPG11) [MIM:604360]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17322883, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19105190}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
