Summaries for LIFR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LIFR Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family. This protein combines with a high-affinity converter subunit, gp130, to form a receptor complex that mediates the action of the leukemia inhibitory factor, a polyfunctional cytokine that is involved in cellular differentiation, proliferation and survival in the adult and the embryo. Mutations in this gene cause Schwartz-Jampel syndrome type 2, a disease belonging to the group of the bent-bone dysplasias. A translocation that involves the promoter of this gene, t(5;8)(p13;q12) with the pleiomorphic adenoma gene 1, is associated with salivary gland pleiomorphic adenoma, a common type of benign epithelial tumor of the salivary gland. Multiple splice variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LIFR Gene

LIFR (Leukemia Inhibitory Factor Receptor Alpha) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LIFR include stuve-wiedemann syndrome/schwartz-jampel type 2 syndrome and sturge-weber syndrome, somatic, mosaic. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor binding and ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CSF3R.

  • Stueve-Wiedemann syndrome (STWS) [MIM:601559]: Severe autosomal recessive condition and belongs to the group of the bent-bone dysplasias. SWS is characterized by bowing of the lower limbs, with internal cortical thickening, wide metaphyses with abnormal trabecular pattern, and camptodactyly. Additional features include feeding and swallowing difficulties, as well as respiratory distress and hyperthermic episodes, which cause death in the first months of life. The rare survivors develop progressive scoliosis, spontaneous fractures, bowing of the lower limbs, with prominent joints and dysautonomia symptoms, including temperature instability, absent corneal and patellar reflexes, and smooth tongue. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14740318}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
