Summaries for BRWD3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRWD3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains a bromodomain and several WD repeats. It is thought to have a chromatin-modifying function, and may thus play a role in transcription. Mutations in this gene cause mental retardation X-linked type 93, which is also referred to as mental retardation X-linked with macrocephaly. This gene is also associated with translocations in patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for BRWD3 Gene

  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving BRWD3 can be found in patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL). Translocation t(X;11)(q21;q23) with ARHGAP20 does not result in fusion transcripts but disrupts both genes.
  • Mental retardation, X-linked 93 (MRX93) [MIM:300659]: A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Intellectual deficiency is the only primary symptom of non-syndromic X-linked mental retardation, while syndromic mental retardation presents with associated physical, neurological and/or psychiatric manifestations. MRX93 is associated with macrocephaly. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17668385}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
