Summaries for CDC6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDC6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is highly similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cdc6, a protein essential for the initiation of DNA replication. This protein functions as a regulator at the early steps of DNA replication. It localizes in cell nucleus during cell cyle G1, but translocates to the cytoplasm at the start of S phase. The subcellular translocation of this protein during cell cyle is regulated through its phosphorylation by Cdks. Transcription of this protein was reported to be regulated in response to mitogenic signals through transcriptional control mechanism involving E2F proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CDC6 Gene

CDC6 (Cell Division Cycle 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDC6 include Meier-Gorlin Syndrome 5 and Meier-Gorlin Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and E2F mediated regulation of DNA replication. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is ORC1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDC6 Gene

  • Involved in the initiation of DNA replication. Also participates in checkpoint controls that ensure DNA replication is completed before mitosis is initiated.

  • Meier-Gorlin syndrome 5 (MGORS5) [MIM:613805]: A syndrome characterized by bilateral microtia, aplasia/hypoplasia of the patellae, and severe intrauterine and postnatal growth retardation with short stature and poor weight gain. Additional clinical findings include anomalies of cranial sutures, microcephaly, apparently low-set and simple ears, microstomia, full lips, highly arched or cleft palate, micrognathia, genitourinary tract anomalies, and various skeletal anomalies. While almost all cases have primordial dwarfism with substantial prenatal and postnatal growth retardation, not all cases have microcephaly, and microtia and absent/hypoplastic patella are absent in some. Despite the presence of microcephaly, intellect is usually normal. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21358632}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
