Summaries for AAGAB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AAGAB Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene interacts with the gamma-adaptin and alpha-adaptin subunits of complexes involved in clathrin-coated vesicle trafficking. Mutations in this gene are associated with type I punctate palmoplantar keratoderma. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]

  • Keratoderma, palmoplantar, punctate 1A (PPKP1A) [MIM:148600]: An autosomal dominant dermatological disorder characterized by multiple hyperkeratotic, centrally indented, papules that develop in early adolescence, or later, and are irregularly distributed on the palms and soles (other palmoplantar keratoses have mostly diffuse hyperkeratinization). In mechanically irritated areas, confluent plaques can be found. Interfamilial and intrafamilial severity shows broad variation. In some cases, PPKP1 is associated with the development of early- and late-onset malignancies, including squamous cell carcinoma. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23000146, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23064416}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
