LZTR1 gene

leucine zipper like transcription regulator 1

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

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a member of the BTB-kelch superfamily. Initially described as a putative transcriptional regulator based on weak homology to members of the basic leucine zipper-like family, the encoded protein subsequently has been shown to localize exclusively to the Golgi network where it may help stabilize the Gogli complex. Deletion of this gene may be associated with DiGeorge syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Probable transcriptional regulator that may play a crucial role in embryogenesis.

  • Noonan syndrome 10
  • Schwannomatosis 2

From UniProt:

Noonan syndrome 10 (NS10): A form of Noonan syndrome, a disease characterized by short stature, facial dysmorphic features such as hypertelorism, a downward eyeslant and low-set posteriorly rotated ears, and a high incidence of congenital heart defects and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Other features can include a short neck with webbing or redundancy of skin, deafness, motor delay, variable intellectual deficits, multiple skeletal defects, cryptorchidism, and bleeding diathesis. Individuals with Noonan syndrome are at risk of juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by excessive production of myelomonocytic cells. [MIM:616564]

Schwannomatosis 2 (SWNTS2): A cancer predisposition syndrome in which patients develop multiple non-vestibular schwannomas, benign neoplasms that arise from Schwann cells of the cranial, peripheral, and autonomic nerves. [MIM:615670]
