Summaries for ZIC3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ZIC3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ZIC family of C2H2-type zinc finger proteins. This nuclear protein probably functions as a transcription factor in early stages of left-right body axis formation. Mutations in this gene cause X-linked visceral heterotaxy, which includes congenital heart disease and left-right axis defects in organs. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ZIC3 Gene

ZIC3 (Zic Family Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ZIC3 include heterotaxy, visceral, 1, x-linked and vacterl association, x-linked. Among its related pathways are Transcriptional Regulatory Network in Embryonic Stem Cell. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and sequence-specific DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is ZIC4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ZIC3 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

ZIC3_HUMAN
  • Heterotaxy, visceral, 1, X-linked (HTX1) [MIM:306955]: A form of visceral heterotaxy, a complex disorder due to disruption of the normal left-right asymmetry of the thoracoabdominal organs. Visceral heterotaxy or situs ambiguus results in randomization of the placement of visceral organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, and stomach. The organs are oriented randomly with respect to the left-right axis and with respect to one another. It can been associated with variety of congenital defects including cardiac malformations. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14681828, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17295247, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24123890, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9354794}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • VACTERL association X-linked with or without hydrocephalus (VACTERLX) [MIM:314390]: A syndrome characterized by a non-random association of congenital defects. Affected individuals manifest vertebral anomalies (V), anal atresia (A), cardiac malformations (C), tracheoesophageal fistula (TE), renal anomalies (R) such as urethral atresia with hydronephrosis, and limb anomalies (L) such as hexadactyly, humeral hypoplasia, radial aplasia, and proximally placed thumb. Some patients may have hydrocephalus. Some cases of VACTERL-H are associated with increased chromosome breakage and rearrangement. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20452998, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24123890}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Congenital heart defects, multiple types, 1, X-linked (CHTD1) [MIM:306955]: A disorder characterized by congenital developmental abnormalities involving structures of the heart. Common defects include transposition of the great arteries, aortic stenosis, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, pulmonic stenosis, and patent ductus arteriosus. The etiology of CHTD is complex, with contributions from environmental exposure, chromosomal abnormalities, and gene defects. Some patients with CHTD also have cardiac arrhythmias, which may be due to the anatomic defect itself or to surgical interventions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14681828, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24123890}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
