Summaries for UBIAD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UBIAD1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein thought to be involved in cholesterol and phospholipid metabolism. Mutations in this gene are associated with Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for UBIAD1 Gene

UBIAD1 (UbiA Prenyltransferase Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UBIAD1 include corneal dystrophy, schnyder type and corneal dystrophy. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism of water-soluble vitamins and cofactors. GO annotations related to this gene include antioxidant activity and prenyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBIAD1 Gene

  • Prenyltransferase that mediates the formation of menaquinone-4 (MK-4) and coenzyme Q10. MK-4 is a vitamin K2 isoform present at high concentrations in the brain, kidney and pancreas, and is required for endothelial cell development. Mediates the conversion of phylloquinone (PK) into MK-4, probably by cleaving the side chain of phylloquinone (PK) to release 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (menadione; K3) and then prenylating it with geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) to form MK-4. Also plays a role in cardiovascular development independently of MK-4 biosynthesis, by acting as a coenzyme Q10 biosyntetic enzyme: coenzyme Q10, also named ubiquinone, plays a important antioxidant role in the cardiovascular system. Mediates biosynthesis of coenzyme Q10 in the Golgi membrane, leading to protect cardiovascular tissues from NOS3/eNOS-dependent oxidative stress.

  • Corneal dystrophy, Schnyder type (SCCD) [MIM:121800]: A form of stromal corneal dystrophy characterized by corneal clouding, resulting from abnormal deposition of cholesterol and phospholipids, and decreased visual acuity. Typically, ring-shaped yellow-white opacities composed of innumerable fine needle-shaped crystals form in Bowman layer and the adjacent anterior stroma of the central cornea. The crystals usually remain in the anterior third of the cornea. The corneal epithelium and endothelium as well as Descemet membrane are spared. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17668063, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17962451, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18176953, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19429578, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19649163, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20489584, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20505825}.
