Family with sequence similarity 134, member B

Fam134b
The protein encoded by this gene is a cis-Golgi transmembrane protein that may be necessary for the long-term survival of nociceptive and autonomic ganglion neurons. Mutations in this gene are a cause of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type IIB (HSAN IIB), and this gene may also play a role in susceptibility to vascular dementia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: CAN, POLYMERASE, AGE, V1a, serine palmitoyltransferase

New
Impact
Dikic et al., Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In Nature, Jul 2015
Downregulation of FAM134B protein in human cells causes an expansion of the ER, while FAM134B overexpression results in ER fragmentation and lysosomal degradation.

New
Impact
Nakatogawa et al., Yokohama, Japan. In Nature, Jul 2015

Genetic analysis of an allergic rhinitis cohort reveals an intercellular epistasis between FAM134B and CD39.
Rotzschke et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Bmc Med Genet, 2013
Epistasis analysis revealed that, in conjunction with a SNP upstream of the FAM134B gene (rs257174), it increased the risk of allergic rhinitis (P = 1.98 × 10-6).
Frequency of mutations in the genes associated with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy in a UK cohort.
Reilly et al., London, United Kingdom. In J Neurol, 2012
To study the frequency of mutations in these genes and the associated phenotypes, we screened 140 index patients in our inherited neuropathy cohort with a clinical diagnosis of HSAN for mutations in the coding regions of SPTLC1, RAB7, WNK1/HSN2, FAM134B, NTRK1 (TRKA) and NGFB.

Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy Type II
Review
Kurth, Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2010
DIAGNOSIS/TESTING: Diagnosis is based on clinical findings and molecular genetic testing of WNK1 (previously HSN2) (type HSAN2A), FAM134B (type HSAN2B), KIF1A (type HSAN2C), and SCN9A (type HSAN2D), the only genes in which mutation is known to cause HSAN2.
