COG6 gene

component of oligomeric golgi complex 6

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a subunit of the conserved oligomeric Golgi complex that is required for maintaining normal structure and activity of the Golgi apparatus. The encoded protein is organized with conserved oligomeric Golgi complex components 5, 7 and 8 into a sub-complex referred to as lobe B. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

From UniProt:

Required for normal Golgi function.

  • Shaheen syndrome
  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation type 2L

From UniProt:

Shaheen syndrome (SHNS): An autosomal recessive form of syndromic mental retardation. Affected individuals show severe intellectual disability, hypohidrosis, dental enamel hypoplasia, and hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. Some may develop mild microcephaly. [MIM:615328]

Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2L (CDG2L): A multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. Clinical features of CDG2L include neonatal intractable focal seizures, vomiting, loss of consciousness, intracranial bleeding due to vitamin K deficiency, and death in infancy. [MIM:614576]
