Summaries for WDR35 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR35 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. Two patients with Sensenbrenner syndrome / cranioectodermal dysplasia (CED) were identified with mutations in this gene, consistent with a possible ciliary function.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]

GeneCards Summary for WDR35 Gene

WDR35 (WD Repeat Domain 35) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WDR35 include Short-Rib Thoracic Dysplasia 7 With Or Without Polydactyly and Cranioectodermal Dysplasia 2. Among its related pathways are Organelle biogenesis and maintenance and Intraflagellar transport. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include binding. An important paralog of this gene is TULP4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WDR35 Gene

  • Component of the IFT complex A (IFT-A), a complex required for retrograde ciliary transport. Required for ciliogenesis. May promote CASP3 activation and TNF-stimulated apoptosis.

  • Cranioectodermal dysplasia 2 (CED2) [MIM:613610]: A disorder characterized by craniofacial, skeletal and ectodermal abnormalities. Clinical features include short stature, dolichocephaly, craniosynostosis, narrow thorax with pectus excavatum, short limbs, brachydactyly, joint laxity, narrow palpebral fissures, telecanthus with hypertelorism, low-set simple ears, everted lower lip, and short neck. Teeth abnormalities include widely spaced, hypoplastic and fused teeth. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20817137}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 7 with or without polydactyly (SRTD7) [MIM:614091]: A form of short-rib thoracic dysplasia, a group of autosomal recessive ciliopathies that are characterized by a constricted thoracic cage, short ribs, shortened tubular bones, and a trident appearance of the acetabular roof. Polydactyly is variably present. Non-skeletal involvement can include cleft lip/palate as well as anomalies of major organs such as the brain, eye, heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, intestines, and genitalia. Some forms of the disease are lethal in the neonatal period due to respiratory insufficiency secondary to a severely restricted thoracic cage, whereas others are compatible with life. Disease spectrum encompasses Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy (Jeune syndrome), Mainzer-Saldino syndrome, and short rib-polydactyly syndrome. SRTD7 hallmarks are acromesomelic hypomineralization, campomelia, polysyndactyly, laterality defects, and cystic kidneys. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21473986}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. WDR35 mutations cause short rib-polydactyly syndrome through impaired cilia formation. Primary fibroblasts from SRTD7 patients lacking WDR35 fail to produce cilia (PubMed:21473986). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21473986}.
