Summaries for RPS17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPS17 Gene

  • Ribosomes, the organelles that catalyze protein synthesis, consist of a small 40S subunit and a large 60S subunit. Together these subunits are composed of four RNA species and approximately 80 structurally distinct proteins. This gene encodes a ribosomal protein that is a component of the 40S subunit. The protein belongs to the S17E family of ribosomal proteins and is located in the cytoplasm. Mutations in this gene cause Diamond-Blackfan anemia 4. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed through the genome. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

GeneCards Summary for RPS17 Gene

RPS17 (Ribosomal Protein S17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPS17 include Diamond-Blackfan Anemia 4 and Diamond-Blackfan Anemia. Among its related pathways are Activation of the mRNA upon binding of the cap-binding complex and eIFs, and subsequent binding to 43S and Viral mRNA Translation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of ribosome. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000260836.

  • Diamond-Blackfan anemia 4 (DBA4) [MIM:612527]: A form of Diamond-Blackfan anemia, a congenital non-regenerative hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. Diamond-Blackfan anemia is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, erythroblastopenia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia. 30 to 40% of Diamond-Blackfan anemia patients present with short stature and congenital anomalies, the most frequent being craniofacial (Pierre-Robin syndrome and cleft palate), thumb and urogenital anomalies. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17647292, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19061985}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
