Summaries for DOCK8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DOCK8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the DOCK180 family of guanine nucleotide exchange factors. Guanine nucleotide exchange factors interact with Rho GTPases and are components of intracellular signaling networks. Mutations in this gene result in the autosomal recessive form of the hyper-IgE syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DOCK8 Gene

DOCK8 (Dedicator Of Cytokinesis 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DOCK8 include Hyper-Ige Recurrent Infection Syndrome, Autosomal Recessive and Autosomal Dominant Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Factors involved in megakaryocyte development and platelet production. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DOCK7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DOCK8 Gene

  • Potential guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF). GEF proteins activate some small GTPases by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP (By similarity). Is involved in NK cell cytotoxicity by controlling polarization of microtubule-organizing center (MTOC), and possibly regulating CCDC88B-mediated lytic granule transport to MTOC during cell killing (PubMed:25762780).

  • Hyperimmunoglobulin E recurrent infection syndrome, autosomal recessive (AR-HIES) [MIM:243700]: A rare disorder characterized by immunodeficiency, recurrent infections, eczema, increased serum IgE, eosinophilia and lack of connective tissue and skeletal involvement. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19776401}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 2 (MRD2) [MIM:614113]: A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18060736}. Note=The gene represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis. A chromosomal aberration disrupting DOCK8 has been found in a patient with mental retardation and ectodermal dysplasia. A balanced translocation, t(X;9) (q13.1;p24). A genomic deletion of approximately 230 kb in subtelomeric 9p has been detected in a patient with mental retardation.
