Summaries for C19orf12 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for C19orf12 Gene

  • This gene encodes a small transmembrane protein. Mutations in this gene are a cause of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation-4 (NBIA4), but the specific function of the encoded protein is unknown. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

  • Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 4 (NBIA4) [MIM:614298]: A neurodegenerative disorder associated with iron accumulation in the brain, primarily in the basal ganglia. NBIA4 results in speech difficulty, extrapyramidal signs, oromandibular and generalized dystonia, and parkinsonism. Most patients have progressive involvement of the corticospinal tract, with spasticity, hyperreflexia, and extensor plantar responses. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21981780, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22508347, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22584950, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22704260, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23269600, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23521069, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23857908, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26136767, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26187298}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Spastic paraplegia 43, autosomal recessive (SPG43) [MIM:615043]: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. SP43 is characterized by childhood onset of progressive spasticity affecting the lower and upper limbs. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23857908}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
