Ellis van Creveld syndrome 2

This gene encodes a protein that functions in bone formation and skeletal development. Mutations in this gene, as well as in a neighboring gene that lies in a head-to-head configuration, cause Ellis-van Creveld syndrome, an autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia that is also known as chondroectodermal dysplasia. Mutations in this gene also cause acrofacial dysostosis Weyers type, also referred to as Curry-Hall syndrome, a disease that combines limb and facial abnormalities. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)

In this study, two novel heterozygous EVC2 mutations, IVS 5-2A > G and c.2653C > T (Arg88 5X), were identified in the patient; the IVS5-2A > G mutation was inherited from the patient's mother and the c.2653C > T from her father
Ellis-van Creveld syndrome: prenatal diagnosis, molecular analysis and genetic counseling.
Wang et al., Taiwan. In Taiwan J Obstet Gynecol, 2010
Molecular analysis of the EVC and EVC2 genes is helpful in genetic counseling in cases with prenatally detected postaxial polydactyly, thoracic narrowness, short limbs and endocardial cushion defects.

Goodship et al., Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. In Bmc Biol, 2010
We demonstrate for the first time that Evc2 is a positive regulator of the Hh signalling pathway and that it is located at the basal body of primary cilia. Evc2 is present in the cell nucleus suggesting movement of Evc2 between the cilium and nucleus.
