Summaries for UNC119 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UNC119 Gene

  • This gene is specifically expressed in the photoreceptors in the retina. The encoded product shares strong homology with the C. elegans unc119 protein and it can functionally complement the C. elegans unc119 mutation. It has been localized to the photoreceptor synapses in the outer plexiform layer of the retina, and suggested to play a role in the mechanism of photoreceptor neurotransmitter release through the synaptic vesicle cycle. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for UNC119 Gene

UNC119 (Unc-119 Lipid Binding Chaperone) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UNC119 include immunodeficiency 13 and cone-rod dystrophy. Among its related pathways are IL-5 Signaling Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include lipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is UNC119B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UNC119 Gene

  • Involved in synaptic functions in photoreceptor cells, the signal transduction in immune cells as a Src family kinase activator, endosome recycling, the uptake of bacteria and endocytosis, protein trafficking in sensory neurons and as lipid-binding chaperone with specificity for a diverse subset of myristoylated proteins. Specifically binds the myristoyl moiety of a subset of N-terminally myristoylated proteins and is required for their localization. Binds myristoylated GNAT1 and is required for G-protein localization and trafficking in sensory neurons. Probably plays a role in trafficking proteins in photoreceptor cells. Plays important roles in mediating Src family kinase signals for the completion of cytokinesis via RAB11A.

    Molecular mass:
    26962 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with CABP4; in the absence of calcium (By similarity). Interacts with DNM1; leading to a decrease of DNM1 GTPase activity (By similarity). May interact with GTP-bound ARL1. Interacts with ARL2 and ARL3 (GTP-bound forms); this promotes the release of myyristoylated cargo proteins (PubMed:22960633). Found in a complex with ARL3, RP2 and UNC119; RP2 induces hydrolysis of GTP ARL3 in the complex, leading to the release of UNC119. Interacts with NPHP3 (when myristoylated). Interacts with CYS1 (when myristoylated). Interacts with C5orf30; interaction only takes place when UNC119 is not liganded with myristoylated proteins. Interacts with LCK; this interaction plays a crucial role in activation of LCK. Interacts with FYN. Interacts with RAB11A; in a cell cycle-dependent manner. Interacts with LYN (via SH2 and SH3 domains); leading to LYN activation. Found in a complex with ABL1, ABL2, CRK and UNC119; leading to the inhibition of CRK phosphorylation by ABL kinases. Interacts with CD44; leading to Shigella invasion.

  • Note=Defects in UNC119 may be a cause of cone-rod dystrophy. A mutation was found in a 57-year-old woman with late-onset cone-rod dystrophy: from 40 year old, the patient suffered from poor night vision, defective color vision and light-sensitivity. At 57 year old, she displayed reduced visual acuity, myopa, macular atrophy and pericentral ring scotomas. The disease was caused by a heterozygous mutation causing premature termination and truncated UNC119 protein with dominant-negative effect. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11006213}.
  • Immunodeficiency 13 (IMD13) [MIM:615518]: A rare and heterogeneous syndrome defined by a reproducible reduction in the CD4 T-lymphocyte count (less than 300 cells per microliter or less than 20% of total T-cells) in the absence of HIV infection or other known causes of immunodeficiency. IMD13 predisposes to infections and malignancy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22184408}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
