From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the P5 subfamily of ATPases which transports inorganic cations as well as other substrates. Mutations in this gene are associated with Kufor-Rakeb syndrome (KRS), also referred to as Parkinson disease 9. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2008]
ATPase which acts as a lysosomal polyamine exporter with high affinity for spermine (PubMed:31996848). Also stimulates cellular uptake of polyamines and protects against polyamine toxicity (PubMed:31996848). Plays a role in intracellular cation homeostasis and the maintenance of neuronal integrity (PubMed:22186024). Contributes to cellular zinc homeostasis (PubMed:24603074). Confers cellular protection against Mn(2+) and Zn(2+) toxicity and mitochondrial stress (PubMed:26134396). Required for proper lysosomal and mitochondrial maintenance (PubMed:22296644, PubMed:28137957). Regulates the autophagy-lysosome pathway through the control of SYT11 expression at both transcriptional and post-translational levels (PubMed:27278822). Facilitates recruitment of deacetylase HDAC6 to lysosomes to deacetylate CTTN, leading to actin polymerization, promotion of autophagosome-lysosome fusion and completion of autophagy (PubMed:30538141). Promotes secretion of exosomes as well as secretion of SCNA via exosomes (PubMed:25392495, PubMed:24603074). Plays a role in lipid homeostasis (PubMed:31132336).

- Spastic paraplegia 78, autosomal recessive
- Kufor-Rakeb syndrome
Spastic paraplegia 78, autosomal recessive (SPG78): A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body. [MIM:617225]
Kufor-Rakeb syndrome (KRS): A rare form of autosomal recessive juvenile or early-onset, levodopa-responsive parkinsonism. In addition to typical parkinsonian signs, clinical manifestations of Kufor-Rakeb syndrome include behavioral problems, facial tremor, pyramidal tract dysfunction, supranuclear gaze palsy, and dementia.
