Alstrom syndrome 1
This gene encodes a protein containing a large tandem-repeat domain. The mouse ortholog of this gene has been shown to function in ciliogenesis in inner medullary collecting duct cells. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Alstrom syndrome. Alternative splice variants have been described but their full length sequences have not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009] (from
Chen et al., Houston, United States. In Hum Mutat, 2011
in a set of consanguineous patient families with Leber congenital amaurosis study identified five putative disease-causing mutations, including four novel alleles, in six families; These five mutations are located in four genes, ALMS1, IQCB1, CNGA3, and MYO7A
