Entrez Gene Summary for GMPPB Gene

  • This gene is thought to encode a GDP-mannose pyrophosphorylase. The encoded protein catalyzes the conversion of mannose-1-phosphate and GTP to GDP-mannose, a reaction involved in the production of N-linked oligosaccharides. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]

GeneCards Summary for GMPPB Gene

GMPPB (GDP-Mannose Pyrophosphorylase B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GMPPB include granulomatous amebic encephalitis and muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy , type b, 14. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and mannose-1-phosphate guanylyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GMPPA.

  • Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with brain and eye anomalies A14 (MDDGA14) [MIM:615350]: An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by congenital muscular dystrophy associated with brain anomalies, eye malformations, and profound mental retardation. The disorder includes a severe form designated as Walker-Warburg syndrome and a less severe phenotype known as muscle-eye-brain disease. MDDGA14 features include increased muscle tone, microcephaly, cleft palate, feeding difficulties, severe muscle weakness, sensorineural hearing loss, cerebellar hypoplasia, ataxia, and retinal dysfunction. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768512}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with mental retardation B14 (MDDGB14) [MIM:615351]: A congenital muscular dystrophy characterized by severe muscle weakness apparent in infancy and mental retardation. Some patients may have additional features, such as microcephaly, cardiac dysfunction, seizures, or cerebellar hypoplasia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768512}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy limb-girdle C14 (MDDGC14) [MIM:615352]: An autosomal recessive form of muscular dystrophy characterized by mild proximal muscle weakness with onset in early childhood. Some patients may have additional features, such as mild intellectual disability or seizures. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23768512}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
