Summaries for TMEM5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TMEM5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a type II transmembrane protein that is thought to have glycosyltransferase function. Mutations in this gene result in cobblestone lissencephaly. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for TMEM5 Gene

  • Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with brain and eye anomalies A10 (MDDGA10) [MIM:615041]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by congenital muscular dystrophy associated with cobblestone lissencephaly and other brain anomalies, eye malformations, profound mental retardation, and death usually in the first years of life. Included diseases are the more severe Walker-Warburg syndrome and the slightly less severe muscle-eye-brain disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23217329, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23519211}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
