Summaries for BCL10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BCL10 Gene

  • This gene was identified by its translocation in a case of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. The protein encoded by this gene contains a caspase recruitment domain (CARD), and has been shown to induce apoptosis and to activate NF-kappaB. This protein is reported to interact with other CARD domain containing proteins including CARD9, 10, 11 and 14, which are thought to function as upstream regulators in NF-kappaB signaling. This protein is found to form a complex with MALT1, a protein encoded by another gene known to be translocated in MALT lymphoma. MALT1 and this protein are thought to synergize in the activation of NF-kappaB, and the deregulation of either of them may contribute to the same pathogenetic process that leads to the malignancy.

GeneCards Summary for BCL10 Gene

BCL10 (B-Cell CLL/Lymphoma 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with BCL10 include immunodeficiency 37 and testicular germ cell tumor. Among its related pathways are PI-3K cascade and Downstream Signaling Events Of B Cell Receptor (BCR). GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and enzyme binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BCL10 Gene

  • Involved in adaptive immune response (PubMed:25365219). Promotes apoptosis, pro-caspase-9 maturation and activation of NF-kappa-B via NIK and IKK. May be an adapter protein between upstream TNFR1-TRADD-RIP complex and the downstream NIK-IKK-IKAP complex. Is a substrate for MALT1 (PubMed:18264101).

Disorders for BCL10 Gene

(4) OMIM Diseases for BCL10 Gene (603517)


  • Note=A chromosomal aberration involving BCL10 is recurrent in low-grade mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT lymphoma). Translocation t(1;14)(p22;q32). Although the BCL10/IgH translocation leaves the coding region of BCL10 intact, frequent BCL10 mutations could be attributed to the Ig somatic hypermutation mechanism resulting in nucleotide transitions.
  • Note=Defects in BCL10 are involved in various types of cancer.
  • Mesothelioma, malignant (MESOM) [MIM:156240]: An aggressive neoplasm of the serosal lining of the chest. It appears as broad sheets of cells, with some regions containing spindle-shaped, sarcoma-like cells and other regions showing adenomatous patterns. Pleural mesotheliomas have been linked to exposure to asbestos. Note=The gene represented in this entry may be involved in disease pathogenesis.
  • Immunodeficiency 37 (IMD37) [MIM:616098]: A form of primary combined immunodeficiency, a group of disorders characterized by severe recurrent infections, with normal numbers or an absence of T and B lymphocytes, and impaired cellular and humoral immunity. IMD37 is characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia without lymphopenia, but with profoundly reduced memory B cells and memory T cells, and increased numbers of circulating naive lymphocytes. Inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:25365219}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
