Unc-13 homolog D
Munc13-4, FHL3, UNC13D
This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the UNC13 family, containing similar domain structure as other family members but lacking an N-terminal phorbol ester-binding C1 domain present in other Munc13 proteins. The protein appears to play a role in vesicle maturation during exocytosis and is involved in regulation of cytolytic granules secretion. Mutations in this gene are associated with familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 3, a genetically heterogeneous, rare autosomal recessive disorder. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

To address the potential role of Munc13-4 as a tethering protein in platelets, we examined mepacrine-stained, dense granule mobility and secretion in platelets from wild-type and Munc13-4 null ( Unc13d(Jinx) ) mice.

Fifty Korean pediatric patients with HLH who lacked pathogenic mutations in PRF1, UNC13D, or in STX11 from the previous series of 72 patients with HLH were analyzed for STXBP2 mutations by conventional sequencing analyses.
UNASSIGNED: Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) represent a severe hyperinflammatory condition with cardinal symptoms of prolonged fever, cytopenias, hepatosplenomegaly, and hemophagocytosis by activated, morphologically benign macrophages with impaired function of natural killer cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes.

We validated the immune modulatory gene Unc13d and the dynein adapter gene Bbs4 by treating wild-type ESCs and primary neurons with siRNA; treated cultures were resistant to rabies infection/replication.

This article aims to review research advances on PRF1, UNC13D, STX11 and STXBP2, as well as the other 5 genes associated with familial HLH based on molecular genetics, and to summarize diagnosis and treatment methods for this disease.
Martin et al., Madison, United States. In J Cell Biol, 2012
study reports that Munc13-4 bound Ca(2 ) and restored Ca(2 )-dependent granule exocytosis to permeable cells (platelets, mast, and neuroendocrine cells) dependent on putative Ca(2 )-binding residues in C2A and C2B.
