Summaries for SPTLC1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SPTLC1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the class-II pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. The encoded protein is the long chain base subunit 1 of serine palmitoyltransferase. Serine palmitoyltransferase converts L-serine and palmitoyl-CoA to 3-oxosphinganine with pyridoxal 5'-phosphate and is the key enzyme in sphingolipid biosynthesis. Mutations in this gene were identified in patients with hereditary sensory neuropathy type 1. Alternatively spliced variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. Pseudogenes of this gene have been defined on chromosomes 1, 6, 10, and 13. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for SPTLC1 Gene

SPTLC1 (Serine Palmitoyltransferase Long Chain Base Subunit 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SPTLC1 include neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, type ia and dnmt1-related dementia, deafness, and sensory neuropathy. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Sphingolipid signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include pyridoxal phosphate binding and serine C-palmitoyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SPTLC1 Gene

  • Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with SPTLC2 or SPTLC3 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. The SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSA complex shows a strong preference for C16-CoA substrate, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC3-SPTSSA isozyme uses both C14-CoA and C16-CoA as substrates, with a slight preference for C14-CoA. The SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSB complex shows a strong preference for C18-CoA substrate, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC3-SPTSSB isozyme displays an ability to use a broader range of acyl-CoAs, without apparent preference.

  • Neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 1A (HSAN1A) [MIM:162400]: A form of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and by prominent sensory abnormalities with a variable degree of motor and autonomic dysfunction. The neurological phenotype is often complicated by severe infections, osteomyelitis, and amputations. HSAN1A is an autosomal dominant axonal form with onset in the second or third decades. Initial symptoms are loss of pain, touch, heat, and cold sensation over the feet, followed by distal muscle wasting and weakness. Loss of pain sensation leads to chronic skin ulcers and distal amputations. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11242114, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19651702, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21618344, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22302274, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24247255}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=SPTLC1 mutations at Ser-331 are responsible for severe hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) forms, whose core features are severe, diffuse muscle wasting and hypotonia, motor and sensory disturbances, foot ulcers, amputations and/or burns, joint hypermobility, cataracts and considerable growth retardation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23454272}.
