Summaries for ZFYVE27 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZFYVE27 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with several transmembrane domains, a Rab11-binding domain and a lipid-binding FYVE finger domain. The encoded protein appears to promote neurite formation. A mutation in this gene has been reported to be associated with hereditary spastic paraplegia, however the pathogenicity of the mutation, which may simply represent a polymorphism, is unclear. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ZFYVE27 Gene

ZFYVE27 (Zinc Finger, FYVE Domain Containing 27) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZFYVE27 include spastic paraplegia 33, autosomal dominant and spastic paraplegia 33.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZFYVE27 Gene

  • Functions as an upstream inhibitor of RAB11, regulating directional protein transport to the forming neurites. Involved in nerve growth factor-induced neurite formation. May have a more general role in cell projections formation.

Disorders for ZFYVE27 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for ZFYVE27 Gene (610243)


  • Spastic paraplegia 33, autosomal dominant (SPG33) [MIM:610244]: 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. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16826525}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. According to PubMed:18606302, the properties of the variant Val-191 and its frequency in some populations raise doubts on the implication of that gene in the disease.
