Summaries for CLN6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLN6 Gene

  • This gene is one of eight which have been associated with neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). Also referred to as Batten disease, NCL comprises a class of autosomal recessive, neurodegenerative disorders affecting children. The genes responsible likely encode proteins involved in the degradation of post-translationally modified proteins in lysosomes. The primary defect in NCL disorders is thought to be associated with lysosomal storage function. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

  • Ceroid lipofuscinosis, neuronal, 4A (CLN4A) [MIM:204300]: An adult-onset neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses are progressive neurodegenerative, lysosomal storage diseases characterized by intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent liposomal material, and clinically by seizures, dementia, visual loss, and/or cerebral atrophy. CLN4A has no visual involvement and is characterized by progressive myoclonic epilepsy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21549341}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
