Summaries for DAB1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DAB1 Gene

  • The laminar organization of multiple neuronal types in the cerebral cortex is required for normal cognitive function. In mice, the disabled-1 gene plays a central role in brain development, directing the migration of cortical neurons past previously formed neurons to reach their proper layer. This gene is similar to disabled-1, and the protein encoded by this gene is thought to be a signal transducer that interacts with protein kinase pathways to regulate neuronal positioning in the developing brain.

  • Spinocerebellar ataxia 37 (SCA37) [MIM:615945]: A form of spinocerebellar ataxia, a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA37 is an autosomal dominant form characterized by adult-onset of slowly progressive gait instability, frequent falls, and dysarthria associated with cerebellar atrophy on brain imaging. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:28686858}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
