Summaries for CDAN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDAN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that appears to play a role in nuclear envelope integrity, possibly related to microtubule attachments. Mutations in this gene cause congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type I, a disease resulting in morphological and functional abnormalities of erythropoiesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]

  • Anemia, congenital dyserythropoietic, 1A (CDAN1A) [MIM:224120]: An autosomal recessive blood disorder characterized by morphological abnormalities of erythroblasts, ineffective erythropoiesis, macrocytic anemia and secondary hemochromatosis. It is occasionally associated with bone abnormalities, especially of the hands and feet (acrodysostosis), nail hypoplasia, and scoliosis. Ultrastructural features include internuclear chromatin bridges connecting some nearly completely separated erythroblasts and an abnormal appearance (spongy or Swiss-cheese appearance) of the heterochromatin in a high proportion of the erythroblasts. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12434312}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
