Summaries for WDPCP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDPCP Gene

  • 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.

Disorders for WDPCP Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for WDPCP Gene (613580)


  • Bardet-Biedl syndrome 15 (BBS15) [MIM:615992]: A syndrome characterized by usually severe pigmentary retinopathy, early-onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation. Secondary features include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. Bardet-Biedl syndrome inheritance is autosomal recessive, but three mutated alleles (two at one locus, and a third at a second locus) may be required for clinical manifestation of some forms of the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20671153}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Congenital heart defects, hamartomas of tongue, and polysyndactyly (CHDTHP) [MIM:217085]: A disease characterized by a constellation of anomalies including tongue hamartomas, polysyndactyly, and congenital heart defects such as atrioventricular canal and coarctation of the aorta. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25427950}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Mutations in WDPCP may act as modifiers of the phenotypic expression of Bardet-Biedl syndrome and Meckel syndrome by interacting in trans with primary BBS and MKS loci. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20671153}.
