Protein fantom (RPGRIP1L) (IPR031136)

Short name: RPGRIP1L

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The human RPGRIP1L gene is one of the causal genes in Meckel and Joubert type B syndromes, two autosomal-recessive multisystem ciliopathies [PMID: 17558409]. RPGRIP1L (also called MKS5, NPHP-8, and for the mouse gene, Ftm, Fantom) is required from developmental processes such as the establishment of left-right asymmetry and patterning of the neural tube and the limbs [PMID: 17553904], and ventricular septal development [PMID: 23469020]. The protein is mainly found at the ciliary transition zone, where it forms a complex with nephrocystin-1 and nephrocystin-4 [PMID: 16339905, PMID: 21565611]. RPGRIP1L is essential for hair follicle morphogenesis [PMID: 25398052] and for planar cell polarity In the mouse cochlea and in the zebrafish floor plate [PMID: 22927466].
