Entrez Gene Summary for STRA6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein involved in the metabolism of retinol. The encoded protein acts as a receptor for retinol/retinol binding protein complexes. This protein removes the retinol from the complex and transports it across the cell membrane. Defects in this gene are a cause of syndromic microphthalmia type 9 (MCOPS9). Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for STRA6 Gene

STRA6 (Stimulated By Retinoic Acid 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STRA6 include diaphragmatic eventration and microphthalmia, syndromic 9. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Disease. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor activity and vitamin transporter activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for STRA6 Gene

  • May act as a high-affinity cell-surface receptor for the complex retinol-retinol binding protein (RBP/RBP4). Acts by removing retinol from RBP/RBP4 and transports it across the plasma membrane, where it can be metabolized. This mechanism does not depend on endocytosis. Binds to RBP/RBP4 with high affinity. Increases cellular retinol uptake from the retinol-RBP complex (By similarity).

STRA6_HUMAN
  • Microphthalmia, syndromic, 9 (MCOPS9) [MIM:601186]: A rare clinical entity including as main characteristics anophthalmia or severe microphthalmia, and pulmonary hypoplasia or aplasia. Microphthalmia is a disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17273977, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17503335, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21901792}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Mutations in STRA6 may be a cause of isolated colobomatous microphthalmia, a disorder of the eye characterized by an abnormally small ocular globe.
