Summaries for SGCE Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SGCE Gene

  • This gene encodes the epsilon member of the sarcoglycan family. Sarcoglycans are transmembrane proteins that are components of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex, which link the actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix. Unlike other family members which are predominantly expressed in striated muscle, the epsilon sarcoglycan is more broadly expressed. Mutations in this gene are associated with myoclonus-dystonia syndrome. This gene is imprinted, with preferential expression from the paternal allele. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. A pseudogene associated with this gene is located on chromosome 2. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]

GeneCards Summary for SGCE Gene

SGCE (Sarcoglycan Epsilon) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SGCE include Dystonia 11, Myoclonic and Dystonia. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is SGCA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SGCE Gene

  • Component of the sarcoglycan complex, a subcomplex of the dystrophin-glycoprotein complex which forms a link between the F-actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix.

  • Dystonia 11, myoclonic (DYT11) [MIM:159900]: A myoclonic dystonia. Dystonia is defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contractions, often leading to abnormal postures. DYT11 is characterized by involuntary lightning jerks and dystonic movements and postures alleviated by alcohol. Inheritance is autosomal dominant. The age of onset, pattern of body involvement, presence of myoclonus and response to alcohol are all variable. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11528394, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12402271, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15079037, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15258227, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16227522, ECO:0000269 PubMed:17853490, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18175340, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18362280, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19066193, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21796726}.
