Summaries for VANGL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VANGL1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the tretraspanin family. The encoded protein may be involved in mediating intestinal trefoil factor induced wound healing in the intestinal mucosa. Mutations in this gene are associated with neural tube defects. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]

  • Neural tube defects (NTD) [MIM:182940]: Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy. Failure of neural tube closure can occur at any level of the embryonic axis. Common NTD forms include anencephaly, myelomeningocele and spina bifida, which result from the failure of fusion in the cranial and spinal region of the neural tube. NTDs have a multifactorial etiology encompassing both genetic and environmental components. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17409324, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19319979}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Sacral defect with anterior meningocele (SDAM) [MIM:600145]: Form of caudal dysgenesis. It is present at birth and becomes symptomatic later in life, usually because of obstructive labor in females, chronic constipation, or meningitis. Inheritance is autosomal dominant. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17409324}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
