Family

Hyccin (IPR018619)

Short name: Hyccin

Family relationships

None.

Description

Members of this family of proteins may have a role in the beta-catenin-Tcf/Lef signaling pathway, as well as in the process of myelination of the central and peripheral nervous system. Defects in Hyccin are the cause of hypomyelination with congenital cataracts [MIM:610532]. This disorder is characterised by congenital cataracts, progressive neurologic impairment, and diffuse myelin deficiency. Affected individuals experience progressive pyramidal and cerebellar dysfunction, muscle weakness and wasting prevailing in the lower limbs [PMID: 16951682, PMID: 10910037].
