Summaries for WDR19 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR19 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. This protein contains six WD repeats, a clathrin heavy-chain repeat, and three transmembrane domains. This gene is conserved from C. elegans to human. It may participate in androgen-regulated signaling mechanisms or in the vesicular trafficking of androgen-regulated secretory processes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported but the full-length nature of one of these variants has not been defined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Disorders for WDR19 Gene

(3) OMIM Diseases for WDR19 Gene (608151)


  • Cranioectodermal dysplasia 4 (CED4) [MIM:614378]: A disorder primarily characterized by craniofacial, skeletal and ectodermal abnormalities. Clinical features include craniosynostosis, narrow rib cage, short limbs, brachydactyly, hypoplastic and widely spaced teeth, sparse hair, skin laxity and abnormal nails. Nephronophthisis leading to progressive renal failure, hepatic fibrosis, heart defects, and retinitis pigmentosa have also been described. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22019273}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 5 with or without polydactyly (SRTD5) [MIM:614376]: A form of short-rib thoracic dysplasia, a group of autosomal recessive ciliopathies that are characterized by a constricted thoracic cage, short ribs, shortened tubular bones, and a trident appearance of the acetabular roof. Polydactyly is variably present. Non-skeletal involvement can include cleft lip/palate as well as anomalies of major organs such as the brain, eye, heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, intestines, and genitalia. Some forms of the disease are lethal in the neonatal period due to respiratory insufficiency secondary to a severely restricted thoracic cage, whereas others are compatible with life. Disease spectrum encompasses Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (Jeune syndrome), Mainzer-Saldino syndrome, and short rib-polydactyly syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22019273}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Nephronophthisis 13 (NPHP13) [MIM:614377]: An autosomal recessive disorder resulting in end-stage renal disease. It is a progressive tubulo-interstitial kidney disorder histologically characterized by modifications of the tubules with thickening of the basement membrane, interstitial fibrosis and, in the advanced stages, medullary cysts. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22019273}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
