Summaries for DYM Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DYM Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which is necessary for normal skeletal development and brain function. Mutations in this gene are associated with two types of recessive osteochondrodysplasia, Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen (DMC) dysplasia and Smith-McCort (SMC) dysplasia, which involve both skeletal defects and mental retardation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome (DMC) [MIM:223800]: A rare autosomal recessive disorder belonging to the group of spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasias. DMC is characterized by progressive short stature with short trunk dwarfism, microcephaly, protruding sternum, and psychomotor retardation. Radiological features include a platyspondyly with double vertebral humps, an epiphyso-metaphyseal dysplasia and lacy pelvis iliac crests. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12491225, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12554689}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Smith-McCort dysplasia 1 (SMC1) [MIM:607326]: A rare autosomal recessive osteochondrodysplasia with skeletal features identical to those of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome, but with normal intelligence and no microcephaly. It is characterized by short limbs and trunk with barrel-shaped chest. The radiographic phenotype includes platyspondyly, generalized abnormalities of the epiphyses and metaphyses, and a distinctive lacy appearance of the iliac crest. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12491225, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19005420}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
