Summaries for IFT52 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IFT52 Gene

  • This gene encodes a conserved proline-rich protein that is a component of the intraflagellar transport-B (IFT-B) core complex. The encoded protein is essential for the integrity of the IFT-B core complex, and for biosynthesis and maintenance of cilia. Mutations in this gene are associated with ciliopathy that affects the skeleton. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]

GeneCards Summary for IFT52 Gene

IFT52 (Intraflagellar Transport 52) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with IFT52 include Short-Rib Thoracic Dysplasia 16 With Or Without Polydactyly and Cranioectodermal Dysplasia 1. Among its related pathways are Organelle biogenesis and maintenance and Intraflagellar transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein C-terminus binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for IFT52 Gene

  • Involved in ciliogenesis as part of a complex involved in intraflagellar transport (IFT), the bi-directional movement of particles required for the assembly, maintenance and functioning of primary cilia (PubMed:27466190). Required for the anterograde transport of IFT88 (PubMed:27466190).

  • Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 16 with or without polydactyly (SRTD16) [MIM:617102]: 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:26880018, ECO:0000269 PubMed:27466190}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
