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. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lymphoma, mucosa-associated lymphoid type (MALTOMA) [MIM:137245]: A subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, originating in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue. MALT lymphomas occur most commonly in the gastro-intestinal tract but have been described in a variety of extranodal sites including the ocular adnexa, salivary gland, thyroid, lung, thymus, and breast. Histologically, they are characterized by an infiltrate of small to medium-sized lymphocytes with abundant cytoplasm and irregularly shaped nuclei. Scattered transformed blasts (large cells) also are present. Non-malignant reactive follicles are observed frequently. A pivotal feature is the presence of lymphoepithelial lesions, with invasion and partial destruction of mucosal glands and crypts by aggregates of tumor cells. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:9989495}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
