Summaries for ZFYVE26 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZFYVE26 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which contains a FYVE zinc finger binding domain. The presence of this domain is thought to target these proteins to membrane lipids through interaction with phospholipids in the membrane. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia-15. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ZFYVE26 Gene

ZFYVE26 (Zinc Finger, FYVE Domain Containing 26) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZFYVE26 include spastic paraplegia 15, autosomal recessive and spastic paraplegia 15. Among its related pathways are Cytoskeletal Signaling and PI3K / Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZFYVE26 Gene

  • Phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate-binding protein required for the abcission step in cytokinesis: recruited to the midbody during cytokinesis and acts as a regulator of abcission. May also be required for efficient homologous recombination DNA double-strand break repair.

  • Spastic paraplegia 15, autosomal recessive (SPG15) [MIM:270700]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. SPG15 is a complex form associated with additional neurological symptoms such as cognitive deterioration or mental retardation, axonal neuropathy, mild cerebellar signs, and, less frequently, a central hearing deficit, decreased visual acuity, or retinal degeneration. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18394578, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19084844, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19805727}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
