Family with sequence similarity 20, member A

This locus encodes a protein that is likely secreted and may function in hematopoiesis. A mutation at this locus has been associated with amelogenesis imperfecta and gingival hyperplasia syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011] (from NCBI)

Papers on Fam20a
A distinctive oral phenotype points to FAM20A mutations not identified by Sanger sequencing.
Mighell et al., Leeds, United Kingdom. In Mol Genet Genomic Med, Nov 2015
Biallelic FAM20A mutations cause two conditions where Amelogenesis Imperfecta (AI) is the presenting feature: Amelogenesis Imperfecta and Gingival Fibromatosis Syndrome; and Enamel Renal Syndrome.
Novel FAM20A mutation causes autosomal recessive amelogenesis imperfecta.
Birk et al., Beersheba, Israel. In Arch Oral Biol, Jun 2015
Autosomal recessive or compound heterozygous mutations in FAM20A, encoding sequence similarity 20, member A, have been shown to cause several AI phenotypes.
Pregnane X receptor knockout mice display aging-dependent wearing of articular cartilage.
Inoue et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Plos One, 2014
We hypothesized that genes induced by SXR in chondrocytes have a protective effect on articular cartilage and identified Fam20a (family with sequence similarity 20a) as an SXR-dependent gene induced by the known SXR ligands, rifampicin and vitamin K2.

Iamaroon et al., Chiang Mai, Thailand. In Am J Med Genet A, 2014
The enamel-renal syndrome of amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) and nephrocalcinosis, and the amelogenesis imperfecta-gingival fibromatosis syndrome have both been associated with mutations in FAM20A.
FAM20A mutations associated with enamel renal syndrome.

FAM20A mutations can cause enamel-renal syndrome (ERS).
Hu et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Plos Genet, 2012
Recently, mutations in FAM20A were reported to cause amelogenesis imperfecta and gingival fibromatosis syndrome (AIGFS), which closely resembles ERS except for the renal calcifications.
Amelogenesis imperfecta and other biomineralization defects in Fam20a and Fam20c null mice.
