Entrez Gene Summary for TDRD7 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the Tudor family of proteins. This protein contains conserved Tudor domains and LOTUS domains. It is a component of RNA granules, which function in RNA processing. Mutations in this gene have been associated with cataract formation in mouse and human. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2014]

GeneCards Summary for TDRD7 Gene

TDRD7 (Tudor Domain Containing 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TDRD7 include cataract 36. Among its related pathways are Aurora A signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include protein N-terminus binding and mRNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is TDRKH.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TDRD7 Gene

  • Component of specific cytoplasmic RNA granules involved in post-transcriptional regulation of specific genes: probably acts by binding to specific mRNAs and regulating their translation. Required for lens transparency during lens development, by regulating translation of genes such as CRYBB3 and HSPB1 in the developing lens. Also required during spermatogenesis.

  • Cataract 36 (CTRCT36) [MIM:613887]: An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye becoming evident at birth. It frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. In general, the more posteriorly located and dense an opacity, the greater the impact on visual function. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21436445}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
