Summaries for IFT43 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IFT43 Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of the intraflagellar transport complex A (IFT-A). IFT-A is a multiprotein complex that plays an important role in cilia assembly and maintenance by mediating retrograde ciliary transport. Mutations in this gene are a cause of cranioectodermal dysplasia-3 (CED3), also known as Sensenbrenner syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for IFT43 Gene

IFT43 (Intraflagellar Transport 43) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFT43 include Cranioectodermal Dysplasia 3 and Cranioectodermal Dysplasia 1. Among its related pathways are Organelle biogenesis and maintenance and Intraflagellar transport.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IFT43 Gene

  • Component of IFT complex A (IFT-A) involved in retrograde ciliary transport along microtubules from the ciliary tip to the base.
