Tetratricopeptide repeat domain 8

This gene encodes a protein that has been directly linked to Bardet-Biedl syndrome. The primary features of this syndrome include retinal dystrophy, obesity, polydactyly, renal abnormalities and learning disabilities. Experimentation in non-human eukaryotes suggests that this gene is expressed in ciliated cells and that it is involved in the formation of cilia. Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

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).
Alternative Splicing Shapes the Phenotype of a Mutation in BBS8 To Cause Nonsyndromic Retinitis Pigmentosa.
Stoilov et al., Morgantown, United States. In Mol Cell Biol, May 2015
Here, we show that cell-type-specific alternative splicing is responsible for confining the phenotype of the A-to-G substitution in the 3' splice site of BBS8 exon 2A (IVS1-2A>G mutation) in the BBS8 gene to photoreceptor cells.
Nephrocystin proteins NPHP5 and Cep290 regulate BBSome integrity, ciliary trafficking and cargo delivery.
Tsang et al., Montréal, Canada. In Hum Mol Genet, May 2015
Depletion of Cep290, another transition zone protein that directly binds to NPHP5, causes additional dissociation of BBS8 and loss of ciliary BBS8.
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.
Clinical and genetic characterization of Bardet-Biedl syndrome in Tunisia: defining a strategy for molecular diagnosis.
Chaabouni et al., Tunisia. In Clin Genet, 2014
Described mutations included c.436C>T (p.R146*) and c.1473+4A>G in BBS1, c.565C> (p.R189*) in BBS2, deletion of exons 4-6 in BBS4, c.149T>G (p.L50R) in BBS5, and c.459+1G>A in BBS8; most frequent mutations were described in BBS1 (4/11, 37%) and BBS2 (2/11, 18%) genes.
A novel mutation in TTC8 is associated with progressive retinal atrophy in the golden retriever.

Regulation of cilium length and intraflagellar transport by the RCK-kinases ICK and MOK in renal epithelial cells.
Jansen et al., Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Plos One, 2013
To analyze the effects of ICK and MOK on the IFT machinery, we set up live imaging of five fluorescently tagged IFT proteins: KIF3B, a subunit of kinesin-II, the main anterograde IFT motor, complex A protein IFT43, complex B protein IFT20, BBSome protein BBS8 and homodimeric kinesin KIF17, whose function in mammalian cilia is unclear.

Sheffield, Iowa City, United States. In Pediatr Res, 2004
The predicted BBS1, BBS2, BBS4, BBS7, and BBS8 gene products do not seem to be molecular chaperones, on the basis of a lack of sequence similarity to the chaperonin family of proteins.

Ansley at al. have now identified a sixth BBS gene (BBS8) and provide evidence that the BBS8 protein and other BBS proteins localize to the basal body of ciliated cells, suggesting that BBS is a ciliary dysfunction disorder.
