Summaries for TMEM138 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TMEM138 Gene

  • This gene encodes a multi-pass transmembrane protein. Reduced expression of this gene in mouse fibroblasts causes short cilia and failure of ciliogenesis. Expression of this gene is tightly coordinated with expression of the neighboring gene TMEM216. Mutations in this gene are associated with the autosomal recessive neurodevelopmental disorder Joubert Syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

TM138_HUMAN
  • Joubert syndrome 16 (JBTS16) [MIM:614465]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by oculomotor apraxia, variable coloboma, and rare kidney involvement. Neuroradiologically, it is characterized by an abnormally large interpeduncular fossa, giving the appearance of a molar tooth on transaxial slices (molar tooth sign). Additional variable features include retinal dystrophy and polydactyly. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22282472}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
