Summaries for LEMD3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LEMD3 Gene

  • This locus encodes a LEM domain-containing protein. The encoded protein functions to antagonize transforming growth factor-beta signaling at the inner nuclear membrane. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Mutations in this gene have been associated with osteopoikilosis, Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome and melorheostosis.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for LEMD3 Gene

LEMD3 (LEM Domain Containing 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LEMD3 include Buschke-Ollendorff Syndrome and Melorheostosis With Osteopoikilosis. Among its related pathways are Mitotic Prophase and DNA Damage/Telomere Stress Induced Senescence. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is LEMD2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LEMD3 Gene

  • Can function as a specific repressor of TGF-beta, activin, and BMP signaling through its interaction with the R-SMAD proteins. Antagonizes TGF-beta-induced cell proliferation arrest.

  • Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome (BOS) [MIM:166700]: A disease characterized by osteopoikilosis and disseminated connective-tissue nevi. Osteopoikilosis is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by a symmetric but unequal distribution of multiple hyperostotic areas in different parts of the skeleton. Elastic-type nevi (juvenile elastoma) and collagen-type nevi (dermatofibrosis lenticularis disseminata) have been described in BOS. Skin or bony lesions can be absent in some family members, whereas other relatives may have both. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15489854}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Melorheostosis (MEL) [MIM:155950]: Rare mesenchymal dysplasia and one of the sclerosing bone disorders. It is caused by a developmental error, with a sclerotomal distribution, frequently involving one limb. It may be asymptomatic, but pain, stiffness with limitation of motion, leg-length discrepancy and limb deformity may occur. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
