Summaries for FTL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FTL Gene

  • This gene encodes the light subunit of the ferritin protein. Ferritin is the major intracellular iron storage protein in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It is composed of 24 subunits of the heavy and light ferritin chains. Variation in ferritin subunit composition may affect the rates of iron uptake and release in different tissues. A major function of ferritin is the storage of iron in a soluble and nontoxic state. Defects in this light chain ferritin gene are associated with several neurodegenerative diseases and hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome. This gene has multiple pseudogenes.

GeneCards Summary for FTL Gene

FTL (Ferritin, Light Polypeptide) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FTL include neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 3 and hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Integrated Pancreatic Cancer Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and ferric iron binding. An important paralog of this gene is FTHL17.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FTL Gene

  • Stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Important for iron homeostasis. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation. Also plays a role in delivery of iron to cells. Mediates iron uptake in capsule cells of the developing kidney (By similarity).

    Size:
    175 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    20020 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Oligomer of 24 subunits. There are two types of subunits: L (light) chain and H (heavy) chain. The major chain can be light or heavy, depending on the species and tissue type. The functional molecule forms a roughly spherical shell with a diameter of 12 nm and contains a central cavity into which the insoluble mineral iron core is deposited. Iron enters the spherical protein shell through pores that are formed between subunits. Mutations leading to truncation or the addition of extra residues at the C-terminus interfere with normal pore formation and with iron accumulation.

  • Hereditary hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome (HHCS) [MIM:600886]: An autosomal dominant disease characterized by elevated level of ferritin in serum and tissues, and early-onset bilateral cataract. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19176363}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 3 (NBIA3) [MIM:606159]: A neurodegenerative disorder associated with iron accumulation in the brain, primarily in the basal ganglia. It is characterized by a variety of neurological signs including parkinsonism, ataxia, corticospinal signs, mild non-progressive cognitive deficit and episodic psychosis. It is linked with decreased serum ferritin levels. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16116125}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • L-ferritin deficiency (LFTD) [MIM:615604]: A condition characterized by low levels of ferritin in serum and tissues in the absence of other hematological symptoms. Seizures and mild neuropsychologic impairment may manifest in individuals with complete ferritin deficiency. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
