Summaries for EVC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EVC2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that functions in bone formation and skeletal development. Mutations in this gene, as well as in a neighboring gene that lies in a head-to-head configuration, cause Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, an autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia that is also known as chondroectodermal dysplasia. Mutations in this gene also cause acrofacial dysostosis Weyers type, also referred to as Curry-Hall syndrome, a disease that combines limb and facial abnormalities. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for EVC2 Gene

EVC2 (EvC Ciliary Complex Subunit 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EVC2 include Ellis-Van Creveld Syndrome and Weyers Acrofacial Dysostosis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by Hedgehog and Hedgehog Pathway.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EVC2 Gene

  • Component of the EvC complex that positively regulates ciliary Hedgehog (Hh) signaling. Plays a critical role in bone formation and skeletal development. May be involved in early embryonic morphogenesis.

  • Ellis-van Creveld syndrome (EVC) [MIM:225500]: An autosomal recessive condition characterized by the clinical tetrad of chondrodystrophy, polydactyly, ectodermal dysplasia and cardiac anomalies. Patients manifest short-limb dwarfism, short ribs, postaxial polydactyly, and dysplastic nails and teeth. Congenital heart defects, most commonly an atrioventricular septal defect, are observed in 60% of affected individuals. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12468274, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12571802}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Acrofacial dysostosis, Weyers type (WAD) [MIM:193530]: An autosomal dominant condition characterized by dysplastic nails, postaxial polydactyly, dental anomalies, short limbs, short stature and normal intelligence. The phenotype is milder than Ellis-van Creveld syndrome. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16404586}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
