Summaries for SYT14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SYT14 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the synaptotagmin gene family and encodes a protein similar to other family members that mediate membrane trafficking in synaptic transmission. The encoded protein is a calcium-independent synaptotagmin. Mutations in this gene are a cause of autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia-11 (SCAR11), and a t(1;3) translocation of this gene has been associated with neurodevelopmental abnormalities. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene, and a pseudogene of this gene is located on the long arm of chromosome 4. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for SYT14 Gene

SYT14 (Synaptotagmin 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SYT14 include Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Autosomal Recessive 11 and Autosomal Recessive Cerebellar Ataxia-Psychomotor Retardation Syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein heterodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is SYT16.

  • Spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive, 11 (SCAR11) [MIM:614229]: Spinocerebellar ataxia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCAR11 is associated with psychomotor retardation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21835308}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
