Summaries for LARP7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LARP7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which is found in the 7SK snRNP (small nuclear ribonucleoprotein). This snRNP complex inhibits a cyclin-dependent kinase, positive transcription elongation factor b, which is required for paused RNA polymerase II at a promoter to begin transcription elongation. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 3. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]

GeneCards Summary for LARP7 Gene

LARP7 (La Ribonucleoprotein Domain Family Member 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LARP7 include Alazami Syndrome and Med23. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is LARP6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LARP7 Gene

  • Negative transcriptional regulator of polymerase II genes, acting by means of the 7SK RNP system. Within the 7SK RNP complex, the positive transcription elongation factor b (P-TEFb) is sequestered in an inactive form, preventing RNA polymerase II phosphorylation and subsequent transcriptional elongation.

  • Alazami syndrome (ALAZS) [MIM:615071]: A syndromic form of primordial dwarfism, a condition characterized by severe growth restriction that has its onset in utero, and results in short stature and undersize. ALAZS patients manifest severe intellectual disability and distinct facial features including malar hypoplasia, deep-set eyes, broad nose, short philtrum, and macrostomia. Some patients have non-specific and inconsistent skeletal findings, for example, scoliosis and mild epiphyseal changes in the proximal phalanges, but no frank dysplasia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21937992, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22865833}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
