From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a protein with 12 WD domains. Proteins with WD domains are involved in many functions including participation in signal transduction pathways. Participation of the encoded protein in regulation of the Notch signaling pathway has been demonstrated in vitro using several human cell lines (PMID:20810660). A gene encoding a similar protein is located on chromosome 5. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
May serve as a scaffold protein for MADD and RAB3GA on synaptic vesicles (PubMed:11809763). Plays a role in the brain as a key controller of neuronal and endocrine homeostatic processes.

- DEAFNESS, AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT 71
- Polyendocrine-polyneuropathy syndrome
Deafness, autosomal dominant, 71 (DFNA71): A form of non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information. DFNA71 is characterized by bilateral mild to moderate hearing loss before age 20 years, which gradually progresses to severe to profound hearing loss. [MIM:617605]
Polyendocrine-polyneuropathy syndrome (PEPNS): A progressive endocrine and neurodevelopmental disorder manifesting early in childhood with growth retardation and recurrent episodes of profound asymptomatic hypoglycemia. PEPNS is characterized by central hypothyroidism, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, incomplete puberty, progressive non-autoimmune insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, peripheral demyelinating sensorimotor polyneuropathy, and cerebellar and pyramidal signs.
