Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CCDC28B Gene
The product of this gene localizes to centrosomes and basal bodies. The protein colocalizes with several proteins associated with Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) and participates in the regulation of cilia development. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
GeneCards Summary for CCDC28B Gene
CCDC28B (Coiled-Coil Domain Containing 28B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCDC28B include Bardet-Biedl Syndrome 1 and Bardet-Biedl Syndrome. An important paralog of this gene is CCDC28A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CCDC28B Gene
Involved in ciliogenesis. Regulates cilia length through its interaction with MAPKAP1/SIN1 but independently of mTORC2 complex. Modulates mTORC2 complex assembly and function, possibly enhances AKT1 phosphorylation. Does not seem to modulate assembly and function of mTORC1 complex.
