Summaries for STRA6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for STRA6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein involved in the metabolism of retinol. The encoded protein acts as a receptor for retinol/retinol binding protein complexes. This protein removes the retinol from the complex and transports it across the cell membrane. Defects in this gene are a cause of syndromic microphthalmia type 9 (MCOPS9). Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for STRA6 Gene

STRA6 (Stimulated By Retinoic Acid 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with STRA6 include Microphthalmia, Syndromic 9 and Colobomatous Microphthalmia. Among its related pathways are Infectious disease and Downstream signaling events of B Cell Receptor (BCR). GO annotations related to this gene include receptor activity and vitamin transporter activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for STRA6 Gene

  • May act as a high-affinity cell-surface receptor for the complex retinol-retinol binding protein (RBP/RBP4). Acts by removing retinol from RBP/RBP4 and transports it across the plasma membrane, where it can be metabolized. This mechanism does not depend on endocytosis. Binds to RBP/RBP4 with high affinity. Increases cellular retinol uptake from the retinol-RBP complex (By similarity).

  • Microphthalmia, syndromic, 9 (MCOPS9) [MIM:601186]: A rare clinical entity including as main characteristics anophthalmia or severe microphthalmia, and pulmonary hypoplasia or aplasia. Microphthalmia is a disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17273977, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17503335, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21901792}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Note=Mutations in STRA6 may be a cause of isolated colobomatous microphthalmia, a disorder of the eye characterized by an abnormally small ocular globe. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21901792}.
