HPS6 gene

HPS6, biogenesis of lysosomal organelles complex 2 subunit 3

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

From NCBI Gene:

This intronless gene encodes a protein that may play a role in organelle biogenesis associated with melanosomes, platelet dense granules, and lysosomes. This protein interacts with Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 5 protein. Mutations in this gene are associated with Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome type 6. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

May regulate the synthesis and function of lysosomes and of highly specialized organelles, such as melanosomes and platelet dense granules.

  • Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 6

From UniProt:

Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 6 (HPS6): A form of Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, a genetically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder characterized by oculocutaneous albinism, bleeding due to platelet storage pool deficiency, and lysosomal storage defects. This syndrome results from defects of diverse cytoplasmic organelles including melanosomes, platelet dense granules and lysosomes. Ceroid storage in the lungs is associated with pulmonary fibrosis, a common cause of premature death in individuals with HPS. [MIM:614075]
