Summaries for KIAA0319 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KIAA0319 Gene

  • This gene encodes a transmembrane protein that contains a large extracellular domain with multiple polycystic kidney disease (PKD) domains. The encoded protein may play a role in the development of the cerebral cortex by regulating neuronal migration and cell adhesion. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene are associated with dyslexia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]

GeneCards Summary for KIAA0319 Gene

KIAA0319 (KIAA0319) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KIAA0319 include Dyslexia 2 and Dyslexia.
