Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Bardet-Biedl syndrome 5 protein (BBS5) is part of the BBSome complex that may function as a coat complex required for sorting of specific membrane proteins to the primary cilia [PMID: 17574030]. Mutations in the BBS5 gene cause Bardet-Biedl syndrome 5, which is a syndrome characterised by usually severe pigmentary retinopathy, early-onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation [PMID: 15137946, PMID: 21344540].
