Summaries for NF1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NF1 Gene

  • This gene product appears to function as a negative regulator of the ras signal transduction pathway. Mutations in this gene have been linked to neurofibromatosis type 1, juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia and Watson syndrome. The mRNA for this gene is subject to RNA editing (CGA>UGA->Arg1306Term) resulting in premature translation termination. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have also been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

CIViC summary for NF1 Gene

GeneCards Summary for NF1 Gene

NF1 (Neurofibromin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NF1 include Neurofibromatosis-Noonan Syndrome and Neurofibromatosis, Type I. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and Syndecan-2-mediated signaling events. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include binding and phosphatidylcholine binding. An important paralog of this gene is RASAL2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NF1 Gene

  • Stimulates the GTPase activity of Ras. NF1 shows greater affinity for Ras GAP, but lower specific activity. May be a regulator of Ras activity.

Individuals with the disorder have increased susceptibility to the development of benign and malignant tumors. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10220149, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10336779, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10607834, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10712197, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10980545, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11258625, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11735023, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11857752, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12522551, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12552569, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12746402, ECO:0000269 PubMed:1302608, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15060124, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15146469, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15520408, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15523642, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15948193, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17160901, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21089070, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2114220, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21838856, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23758643, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24413922, ECO:0000269 PubMed:7981679, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8081387, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8544190, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8807336, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8834249, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9003501, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9101300, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9150739, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9298829, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9668168}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Leukemia, juvenile myelomonocytic (JMML) [MIM:607785]: An aggressive pediatric myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative disorder characterized by malignant transformation in the hematopoietic stem cell compartment with proliferation of differentiated progeny. Patients have splenomegaly, enlarged lymph nodes, rashes, and hemorrhages. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Watson syndrome (WTSN) [MIM:193520]: A syndrome characterized by the presence of pulmonary stenosis, cafe-au-lait spots, and mental retardation. It is considered as an atypical form of neurofibromatosis. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Familial spinal neurofibromatosis (FSNF) [MIM:162210]: Considered to be an alternative form of neurofibromatosis, showing multiple spinal tumors. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11704931}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Neurofibromatosis-Noonan syndrome (NFNS) [MIM:601321]: Characterized by manifestations of both NF1 and Noonan syndrome (NS). NS is a disorder characterized by dysmorphic facial features, short stature, hypertelorism, cardiac anomalies, deafness, motor delay, and a bleeding diathesis. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12707950, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16380919, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19845691}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]: A complex disease characterized by malignant lesions arising from the inner wall of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum. Genetic alterations are often associated with progression from premalignant lesion (adenoma) to invasive adenocarcinoma. Risk factors for cancer of the colon and rectum include colon polyps, long-standing ulcerative colitis, and genetic family history. Note=The gene represented in this entry may be involved in disease pathogenesis.

Genatlas disease for NF1 Gene

neurofibromatosis 1 (von Recklinghausen disease),characterized by cafe au lait spots,axillary freckling,Lisch nodules of the iris,multiple neurofibromas,tibial pseudarthrosis and a predisposition to certain benign and malignant tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system,with a variable expression even among relatives with the same mutation and apparently an earlier onset or a more severe form associated with deletions,including neurofibrosarcoma (see TSG17C),Watson disease (cafe au lait spots with pulmonic stenosis)
