This gene encodes a cytoplasmic WD40 repeat protein. A similar gene in frogs encodes a planar cell polarity protein that plays a critical role in collective cell movement and ciliogenesis by mediating septin localization. Mutations in this gene are associated with Bardet-Biedl syndrome 15 and may also play a role in Meckel-Gruber syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for WDPCP Gene
WDPCP (WD Repeat Containing Planar Cell Polarity Effector) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WDPCP include wdpcp-related bardet-biedl syndrome and heart defect, tongue hamartoma and polysyndactyly.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WDPCP Gene
Probable effector of the planar cell polarity signaling pathway which regulates the septin cytoskeleton in both ciliogenesis and collective cell movements.
