FSHD region gene 1

FRG1, FSHD region gene 1, FSGI
This gene maps to a location 100 kb centromeric of the repeat units on chromosome 4q35 which are deleted in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). It is evolutionarily conserved and has related sequences on multiple human chromosomes but DNA sequence analysis did not reveal any homology to known genes. In vivo studies demonstrate the encoded protein is localized to the nucleolus. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Cryptic 13q34 and 4q35.2 Deletions in an Italian Family.
Martorana et al., Parma, Italy. In Cytogenet Genome Res, Jan 2016
The terminal deletion in 4q35.2 contains other OMIM genes (FRG1, FRG2 and DBET); moreover, the 4q region is reported as a susceptibility locus for Crohn's disease, diagnosed in the proband's father.
Direct interplay between two candidate genes in FSHD muscular dystrophy.
Gabellini et al., Milano, Italy. In Hum Mol Genet, Apr 2015
Among the FSHD candidate genes are double homeobox 4 (DUX4), encoded by the most telomeric D4Z4 unit, and FSHD region gene 1 (FRG1).
SNF2 chromatin remodeler-family proteins FRG1 and -2 are required for RNA-directed DNA methylation.
Ausin et al., Fuzhou, China. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2015
Here we report the discovery of two redundant proteins, SNF2-ring-helicase-like1 and -2 (FRG1 and -2) that are putative chromatin modifiers belonging to the SNF2 family of helicase-like proteins.
FHL1 reduces dystrophy in transgenic mice overexpressing FSHD muscular dystrophy region gene 1 (FRG1).

Several disease candidate genes have been proposed including DUX4 and FRG1.

Tupler et al., Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy. In Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol, 2014
Mice overexpressing FRG1 (FSHD region gene 1), a candidate gene for this disease, develop a progressive myopathy with features of the human disorder.
DUX4 promotes transcription of FRG2 by directly activating its promoter in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
Van der Maarel et al., Leiden, Netherlands. In Skelet Muscle, 2013
In some studies, genes centromeric to the D4Z4 repeat array have been reported to be over-expressed in FSHD, including FRG1 and FRG2, presumably due to decreased long-distance repression by the shorter array through a mechanism similar to position-effect variegation.
FSHD muscular dystrophy region gene 1 binds Suv4-20h1 histone methyltransferase and impairs myogenesis.
Gabellini et al., Milano, Italy. In J Mol Cell Biol, 2013
Among them, we focused on FSHD region gene 1 (FRG1) since its over-expression in mice, Xenopus laevis and Caenorhabditis elegans, leads to muscular dystrophy-like defects, suggesting that FRG1 plays a relevant role in muscle biology.
Super-telomeres in transformed human fibroblasts.
Mondello et al., Pavia, Italy. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2013
Super-telomeres neither influenced subtelomeric region global methylation nor the expression of the subtelomeric gene FRG1, attesting the lack of a clear-cut relationship between telomere length, subtelomeric DNA methylation and expression in human cells.

Benian et al., Atlanta, United States. In Methods, 2012
Loss of function mutants for eight proteins had been reported to have normal locomotion (ZYX-1 (zyxin), ALP-1 (Enigma), DIM-1, SCPL-1), or locomotion that was not previously investigated (FRG-1 (FRG1), KIN-32 (focal adhesion kinase), LIM-8), or had only slightly decreased locomotion (PFN-3 (profilin)).
