Summaries for BMPER Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BMPER Gene

  • This gene encodes a secreted protein that interacts with, and inhibits bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) function. It has been shown to inhibit BMP2- and BMP4-dependent osteoblast differentiation and BMP-dependent differentiation of the chondrogenic cells. Mutations in this gene are associated with a lethal skeletal disorder, diaphanospondylodysostosis. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BMPER Gene

BMPER (BMP Binding Endothelial Regulator) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BMPER include diaphanospondylodysostosis and spondylocostal dysostosis. An important paralog of this gene is OTOGL.

  • Diaphanospondylodysostosis (DSD) [MIM:608022]: A rare, recessively inherited, perinatal lethal skeletal disorder. The primary skeletal characteristics of the phenotype include a small chest, abnormal vertebral segmentation, and posterior rib gaps containing incompletely differentiated mesenchymal tissue. Consistent craniofacial features include ocular hypertelorism, epicanthal folds, a depressed nasal bridge with a short nose, and low-set ears. The most commonly described extraskeletal finding is nephroblastomatosis with cystic kidneys, but other visceral findings have been described in some cases. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20869035}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
