Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4

This gene is a member of the Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) gene family. Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by severe pigmentary retinopathy, obesity, polydactyly, renal malformation and mental retardation. The proteins encoded by BBS gene family members are structurally diverse. The similar phenotypes exhibited by mutations in BBS gene family members are likely due to the protein's shared roles in cilia formation and function. Many BBS proteins localize to the basal bodies, ciliary axonemes, and pericentriolar regions of cells. BBS proteins may also be involved in intracellular trafficking via microtubule-related transport. The protein encoded by this gene has sequence similarity to O-linked N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) transferases in plants and archaebacteria and in human forms a multi-protein "BBSome" complex with six other BBS proteins. Alternative splice variants have been described but their predicted protein products have not been experimentally verified.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009] (from NCBI)

Differential effects on β-cell mass by disruption of Bardet-Biedl syndrome or Alstrom syndrome genes.
Zaghloul et al., Baltimore, United States. In Hum Mol Genet, Feb 2016
Loss of the Alstrom gene, alms1, resulted in a significant decrease in β-cell production whereas loss of BBS genes, bbs1 or bbs4, resulted in a significant increase.
Targeted multi-gene panel testing for the diagnosis of Bardet Biedl syndrome: Identification of nine novel mutations across BBS1, BBS2, BBS4, BBS7, BBS9, BBS10 genes.
Ozkinay et al., İzmir, Turkey. In Eur J Med Genet, Dec 2015
In this study, 15 patients with clinically diagnosed BBS were investigated using a next generation sequencing panel which included 17 known BBS causing genes (BBS1, BBS2, ARL6, BBS4, BBS5, MKKS, BBS7, TTC8, BBS9, BBS10, TRIM32, BBS12, MKS1, NPHP6, WDPCP, SDCCAG8, NPHP1).
Architectures of multisubunit complexes revealed by a visible immunoprecipitation assay using fluorescent fusion proteins.
Nakayama et al., Kyoto, Japan. In J Cell Sci, Jul 2015
We also demonstrated the assembly sequence of the BBSome around the centrosome, and showed that BBS18 (also known as BBIP1 and BBIP10) serves as a linker between BBS4 and BBS8 (also known as TTC8).
BBS4 and BBS5 show functional redundancy in the BBSome to regulate the degradative sorting of ciliary sensory receptors.
Hu et al., Rochester, United States. In Sci Rep, 2014
BBS-4 directly interacts with BBS-5 and the interaction can be disrupted by a conserved mutation identified in human BBS4.
Bardet-Biedl syndrome proteins 1 and 3 regulate the ciliary trafficking of polycystic kidney disease 1 protein.
Zhou et al., Boston, United States. In Hum Mol Genet, 2014
Here, we demonstrate that, unlike the seven-span somatostatin receptor 3 or the leptin receptor that interacts with all subunits of the BBSome, the ADPKD protein polycystin-1 (PC1) interacts with BBS1, BBS4, BBS5 and BBS8, four of the seven components of the BBSome.
BBS4 is necessary for ciliary localization of TrkB receptor and activation by BDNF.
Zaghloul et al., Baltimore, United States. In Plos One, 2013
Upon loss of BBS4 expression in cultured cells, we observed decreased phosphorylation and activation by BDNF of its target receptor, TrkB.
A novel nonsense mutation in BBS4 gene identified in a Chinese family with Bardet-Biedl syndrome.

Autophagy promotes primary ciliogenesis by removing OFD1 from centriolar satellites.
Zhong et al., Dallas, United States. In Nature, 2013
In autophagy-deficient Atg5 or Atg3 null mouse embryonic fibroblasts, OFD1 accumulates at centriolar satellites, leading to fewer and shorter primary cilia and a defective recruitment of BBS4 (Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4) to cilia.
Exome capture sequencing identifies a novel mutation in BBS4.
