From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a coiled-coil domain-containing protein. The encoded protein may function as a tumor suppressor. A translocation that results in truncation of the protein encoded by this locus has been associated with mirror-image polydactyly, also known as Laurin-Sandrow Syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
A chromosomal aberration involving MIPOL1 is found in a patient with mirror-image polydactyly of hands and feet without other anomalies (MIP). Translocation t(2;14)(p23.3;q13). MIP is a very rare congenital anomaly characterized by mirror-image duplication of digits. MIP is occasionally associated with dimelia of the ulna and fibula, tibial and/or fibular hypoplasia, nasal abnormality and other malformations. Most MIP cases are sporadic, but very rare parent-child transmissions observed in familial cases suggest an autosomal mode of inheritance.
