Summaries for LPAR6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LPAR6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of G-protein coupled receptors, that are preferentially activated by adenosine and uridine nucleotides. This gene aligns with an internal intron of the retinoblastoma susceptibility gene in the reverse orientation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2009]

GeneCards Summary for LPAR6 Gene

LPAR6 (Lysophosphatidic Acid Receptor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LPAR6 include Hypotrichosis 8 and Woolly Hair Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LPAR4.

  • Woolly hair autosomal recessive 1 with or without hypotrichosis (ARWH1) [MIM:278150]: A hair shaft disorder characterized by fine and tightly curled hair. Compared to normal curly hair that is observed in some populations, woolly hair grows slowly and stops growing after a few inches. Under light microscopy, woolly hair shows some structural anomalies, including trichorrhexis nodosa and tapered ends. Some individuals exhibit features of hypotrichosis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18297072}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Hypotrichosis 8 (HYPT8) [MIM:278150]: A condition characterized by the presence of less than the normal amount of hair and abnormal hair follicles and shafts, which are thin and atrophic. The disorder affects the trunk and extremities as well as the scalp, and the eyebrows and eyelashes may also be involved, whereas beard, pubic, and axillary hairs are largely spared. In addition, patients can develop hyperkeratotic follicular papules, erythema, and pruritus in affected areas. In some patients with congenital hypotrichosis, monilethrix-like hairs showing elliptical nodes have been observed. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18297070}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
