Summaries for KLHL7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KLHL7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a BTB-Kelch-related protein. The encoded protein may be involved in protein degradation. Mutations in this gene have been associated with retinitis pigmentosa 42. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]

GeneCards Summary for KLHL7 Gene

KLHL7 (Kelch-Like Family Member 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLHL7 include retinitis pigmentosa 42 and klhl7-related retinitis pigmentosa. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is GAN.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KLHL7 Gene

  • Substrate-specific adapter of a BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex. The BCR(KLHL7) complex acts by mediating ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of substrate proteins. Probably mediates Lys-48-linked ubiquitination.

Disorders for KLHL7 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for KLHL7 Gene (611119)


  • Retinitis pigmentosa 42 (RP42) [MIM:612943]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19520207, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20547956, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22084217}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
