Summaries for MCOLN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MCOLN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a memberof the transient receptor potential (TRP) cation channel gene family. The transmembrane protein localizes to intracellular vesicular membranes including lysosomes, and functions in the late endocytic pathway and in the regulation of lysosomal exocytosis. The channel is permeable to Ca(2+), Fe(2+), Na(+), K(+), and H(+), and is modulated by changes in Ca(2+) concentration. Mutations in this gene result in mucolipidosis type IV. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for MCOLN1 Gene

MCOLN1 (Mucolipin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCOLN1 include mucolipidosis iv and mucolipidosis. Among its related pathways are Lysosome and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include cation channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is MCOLN2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCOLN1 Gene

  • Cation channel probably playing a role in the endocytic pathway and in the control of membrane trafficking of proteins and lipids. Could play a major role in Ca(2+) transport regulating lysosomal exocytosis.

  • Mucolipidosis type IV (MLIV) [MIM:252650]: Autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder characterized by severe psychomotor retardation and ophthalmologic abnormalities, including corneal opacity, retinal degeneration and strabismus. Storage bodies of lipids and water-soluble substances are seen by electron microscopy in almost every cell type of the patients. Most patients are unable to speak or walk independently and reach a maximal developmental level of 1-2 years. All patients have constitutive achlorhydia associated with a secondary elevation of serum gastrin levels. MLIV may be due to a defect in sorting and/or transport along the late endocytic pathway. MLIV is found at relatively high frequency among Ashkenazi Jews. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11030752, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11317355, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12182165, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15523648}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
