From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
G-beta-like protein involved in cell signal transduction (PubMed:15378603, PubMed:19446606, PubMed:22065575, PubMed:23625927, PubMed:27098453, PubMed:26895380). Acts as a negative regulator in MAPK signaling pathway (PubMed:15378603). Functions as a scaffolding protein to promote G beta:gamma-mediated PLCB2 plasma membrane translocation and subsequent activation in leukocytes (PubMed:22065575, PubMed:23625927). Acts as a negative regulator of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway through preventing ubiquitination of beta-catenin CTNNB1 by the beta-catenin destruction complex, thus negatively regulating CTNNB1 degradation (PubMed:27098453). Serves as a scaffold to coordinate PI3K/AKT pathway-driven cell growth and migration (PubMed:26895380). Protects cells from oxidative stress-induced apoptosis via the down-regulation of AP-1 transcriptional activity as well as by inhibiting cytochrome c release from mitochondria (PubMed:19446606). Protects also cells by promoting hypoxia-mediated autophagy and mitophagy.

- SKRABAN-DEARDORFF SYNDROME
Skraban-Deardorff syndrome (SKDEAS): An autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by psychomotor developmental delay, intellectual disability with delayed speech, febrile and non-febrile seizures, abnormal gait, and facial dysmorphism. Facial features include a prominent maxilla and upper lip that readily reveal the upper gingiva, widely spaced teeth, and a broad nasal tip. [MIM:617616]
