What is the official name of the ANKRD1 gene?

The official name of this gene is “ankyrin repeat domain 1.”

ANKRD1 is the gene's official symbol. The ANKRD1 gene is also known by other names, listed below.

Read more about gene names and symbols on the About page.

What is the normal function of the ANKRD1 gene?

From NCBI GeneThis link leads to a site outside Genetics Home Reference.:

The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the nucleus of endothelial cells and is induced by IL-1 and TNF-alpha stimulation. Studies in rat cardiomyocytes suggest that this gene functions as a transcription factor. Interactions between this protein and the sarcomeric proteins myopalladin and titin suggest that it may also be involved in the myofibrillar stretch-sensor system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt (ANKR1_HUMAN)This link leads to a site outside Genetics Home Reference.:

May play an important role in endothelial cell activation. May act as a nuclear transcription factor that negatively regulates the expression of cardiac genes. Induction seems to be correlated with apoptotic cell death in hepatoma cells.

How are changes in the ANKRD1 gene related to health conditions?

Genetics Home Reference provides information about familial dilated cardiomyopathy, which is associated with changes in the ANKRD1 gene.
UniProt (ANKR1_HUMAN)This link leads to a site outside Genetics Home Reference. provides the following information about the ANKRD1 gene's known or predicted involvement in human disease.

Total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR): Rare congenital heart disease (CHD) in which the pulmonary veins fail to connect to the left atrium during cardiac development, draining instead into either the right atrium or one of its venous tributaries. This disease accounts for 1.5% of all CHDs and has a prevalence of approximately 1 out of 15'000 live births. The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

OMIM.orgThis link leads to a site outside Genetics Home Reference., a catalog designed for genetics professionals and researchers, provides the following information about the ANKRD1 gene and its association with health conditions.

Where is the ANKRD1 gene located?

Cytogenetic Location: 10q23.31

Molecular Location on chromosome 10: base pairs 90,912,100 to 90,921,275

(Homo sapiens Annotation Release 107, GRCh38.p2) (NCBIThis link leads to a site outside Genetics Home Reference.)

The ANKRD1 gene is located on the long (q) arm of chromosome 10 at position 23.31.

The ANKRD1 gene is located on the long (q) arm of chromosome 10 at position 23.31.

More precisely, the ANKRD1 gene is located from base pair 90,912,100 to base pair 90,921,275 on chromosome 10.
