    • TNX genes are located in the class III HLA region within a complex locus, named RCCX module, containing genes for RP1/STK19, C4B, CYP21B/CYP21A2 and TNXB. Most chromosomes bear 2 modules, but monomodular and trimodular haplotypes are common in most populations. The bimodular haplotype results from the duplication of the RCCX module, leading to a duplicate containing RP2/RP1 pseudogene, C4A, CYP21A/CYP21A1P and TNXA. TNXA is a duplicated section of TNXB and probably consists in a truncated pseudogene: it contains a 120 bp deletion causing a frameshift and a premature stop codon that probably render the gene non-functional. In some pathologies, an unequal crossover between monomodular and bimodular RCCX results in a chromosome with a TNXB-TNXA hybrid gene, arising from a fusion between the TNXB gene of a monomodular RCCX and the TNXA gene of a bimodular RCCX. The TNXB-TNXA hybrid may correspond to TNXB-Short gene and may produce a functional protein

(4) Diseases for TNXA Gene


  • Tenascin-X deficiency (TNXD) [MIM:606408]: TNXD leads to an Ehlers-Danlos-like syndrome characterized by hyperextensible skin, hypermobile joints, and tissue fragility. Tenascin-X-deficient patients, however, lack atrophic scars, a major diagnostic criteria for classic Ehlers-Danlos. Delayed wound healing, which is also common in classic EDS, is only present in a subset of patients. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768946}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
