Summaries for DYNC2H1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DYNC2H1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a large cytoplasmic dynein protein that is involved in retrograde transport in the cilium and has a role in intraflagellar transport, a process required for ciliary/flagellar assembly. Mutations in this gene cause a heterogeneous spectrum of conditions related to altered primary cilium function and often involve polydactyly, abnormal skeletogenesis, and polycystic kidneys. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DYNC2H1 Gene

DYNC2H1 (Dynein Cytoplasmic 2 Heavy Chain 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DYNC2H1 include Short-Rib Thoracic Dysplasia 3 With Or Without Polydactyly and Short-Rib Thoracic Dysplasia 1 With Or Without Polydactyly. Among its related pathways are Organelle biogenesis and maintenance and Intraflagellar transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNAH10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DYNC2H1 Gene

  • May function as a motor for intraflagellar retrograde transport. Functions in cilia biogenesis. May play a role in transport between endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi or organization of the Golgi in cells (By similarity).

  • Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 3 with or without polydactyly (SRTD3) [MIM:613091]: A form of short-rib thoracic dysplasia, a group of autosomal recessive ciliopathies that are characterized by a constricted thoracic cage, short ribs, shortened tubular bones, and a trident appearance of the acetabular roof. Polydactyly is variably present. Non-skeletal involvement can include cleft lip/palate as well as anomalies of major organs such as the brain, eye, heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, intestines, and genitalia. Some forms of the disease are lethal in the neonatal period due to respiratory insufficiency secondary to a severely restricted thoracic cage, whereas others are compatible with life. Disease spectrum encompasses Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (Jeune syndrome), Mainzer-Saldino syndrome, and short rib-polydactyly syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19361615, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19442771, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22499340, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23456818}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. In some cases DYNC2H1 mutations result in disease phenotype in the presence of mutations in NEK1 indicating digenic inheritance (digenic short rib-polydactyly syndrome 3/6 with polydactyly) (PubMed:21211617). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21211617}.
