Summaries for PAM16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PAM16 Gene

  • This gene encodes a mitochondrial protein involved in granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) signaling. This protein also plays a role in the import of nuclear-encoded mitochondrial proteins into the mitochondrial matrix and may be important in reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasis. Mutations in this gene cause Megarbane-Dagher-Melike type spondylometaphyseal dysplasia, an early lethal skeletal dysplasia characterized by short stature, developmental delay and other skeletal abnormalities. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]

GeneCards Summary for PAM16 Gene

PAM16 (Presequence Translocase Associated Motor 16) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PAM16 include Spondylometaphyseal Dysplasia, Megarbane-Dagher-Melki Type and Acth-Secreting Pituitary Adenoma. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Mitochondrial protein import. An important paralog of this gene is CORO7-PAM16.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PAM16 Gene

  • Regulates ATP-dependent protein translocation into the mitochondrial matrix. Inhibits DNAJC19 stimulation of HSPA9/Mortalin ATPase activity.
