Summaries for BIN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BIN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes several isoforms of a nucleocytoplasmic adaptor protein, one of which was initially identified as a MYC-interacting protein with features of a tumor suppressor. Isoforms that are expressed in the central nervous system may be involved in synaptic vesicle endocytosis and may interact with dynamin, synaptojanin, endophilin, and clathrin. Isoforms that are expressed in muscle and ubiquitously expressed isoforms localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus and activate a caspase-independent apoptotic process. Studies in mouse suggest that this gene plays an important role in cardiac muscle development. Alternate splicing of the gene results in ten transcript variants encoding different isoforms. Aberrant splice variants expressed in tumor cell lines have also been described. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BIN1 Gene

BIN1 (Bridging Integrator 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BIN1 include myopathy, centronuclear, autosomal recessive and intracranial abscess. Among its related pathways are Arf6 trafficking events and Delta508-CFTR traffic / ER-to-Golgi in CF. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and GTPase binding. An important paralog of this gene is AMPH.

Disorders for BIN1 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for BIN1 Gene (601248)


  • Myopathy, centronuclear, 2 (CNM2) [MIM:255200]: A congenital muscle disorder characterized by progressive muscular weakness and wasting involving mainly limb girdle, trunk, and neck muscles. It may also affect distal muscles. Weakness may be present during childhood or adolescence or may not become evident until the third decade of life. Ptosis is a frequent clinical feature. The most prominent histopathologic features include high frequency of centrally located nuclei in muscle fibers not secondary to regeneration, radial arrangement of sarcoplasmic strands around the central nuclei, and predominance and hypotrophy of type 1 fibers. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17676042}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
