Sex comb on midleg homolog 1

Scmh1, SCML1, Nance-Horan syndrome protein, Sex comb on midleg homolog-1, Sex comb on midleg homolog
This gene encodes a protein containing four conserved nuclear localization signals. The encoded protein may function during the development of the eyes, teeth, and brain. Mutations in this gene have been shown to cause Nance-Horan syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.

Reverter et al., Brisbane, Australia. In Bmc Bioinformatics, 2013
We also identified a set of previously unidentified loci with high population-specific CE scores including the chromatin remodeler SCMH1 in Africans and EDA2R in Asians.
Scmh1 has E3 ubiquitin ligase activity for geminin and histone H2A and regulates geminin stability directly or indirectly via transcriptional repression of Hoxa9 and Hoxb4.
Takihara et al., Hiroshima, Japan. In Mol Cell Biol, 2013
Scmh1 is a substoichiometric component of PcG complex 1 that provides the complex with an interaction domain for geminin.

Weksberg et al., Toronto, Canada. In Bmc Med Genomics, 2012
Further, loss of DNA methylation at the promoters of the three top candidate genes FBXL5, SCMH1, CACYBP was not observed in more than 900 population controls.
Phenotype-genotype correlation in potential female carriers of X-linked developmental cataract (Nance-Horan syndrome).
Alkuraya et al., Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Ophthalmic Genet, 2012
Lens opacities centered around the posterior Y-suture in the context of certain facial features were sensitive and specific clinical signs of carrier status for NHS mutation in asymptomatic females.
The first missense mutation of NHS gene in a Tunisian family with clinical features of NHS syndrome including cardiac anomaly.
Bouhamed et al., Tunisia. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2011
Direct sequencing of NHS sequences in a Tunisian family identified the first missense mutation (P551S) and a reported SNP-polymorphism (L1319F) in exon 6, a reported UTR-SNP (c.7422 C>T) and a novel one (c.8239 T>A) in exon 8.
Identification of a microdeletion at Xp22.13 in a Taiwanese family presenting with Nance-Horan syndrome.
Chen et al., Taiwan. In J Hum Genet, 2011
The deleted region encompasses the REPS2, NHS, SCML1 and RAI2 genes, and was transmitted from their carrier mother who presented only mild cataract.
Epigenetic modification of retinoic acid-treated human embryonic stem cells.
Shin et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Bmb Rep, 2010
Combined analysis of methylation and expression data revealed that 19 genes (STAP2, VAMP8, C10orf26, WFIKKN1, ELF3, C1QTNF6, C10orf10, MRGPRF, ARSE, LSAMP, CENTD3, LDB2, POU5F1, GSPT2, THY1, ZNF574, MSX1, SCMH1, and RARB) were highly correlated with each other.
The Nance-Horan syndrome protein encodes a functional WAVE homology domain (WHD) and is important for co-ordinating actin remodelling and maintaining cell morphology.
Hardcastle et al., London, United Kingdom. In Hum Mol Genet, 2010
these data identify NHS as a new regulator of actin remodelling.
Polycomb group proteins as epigenetic mediators of neuroprotection in ischemic tolerance.
Zhou et al., Milford, United States. In Sci Signal, 2009
Knocking down PcG proteins precluded the induction of ischemic tolerance, whereas in an in vitro model, overexpressing the PcG proteins SCMH1 or BMI1 induced tolerance to ischemia without preconditioning.
X-linked cataract and Nance-Horan syndrome are allelic disorders.
Hardcastle et al., London, United Kingdom. In Hum Mol Genet, 2009

Novel causative mutations in patients with Nance-Horan syndrome and altered localization of the mutant NHS-A protein isoform.
Craig et al., Australia. In Mol Vis, 2007

Adaptive evolution of SCML1 in primates, a gene involved in male reproduction.
Su et al., Kunming, China. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2007
the molecular evolutionary pattern of SCML1 in diverse primate species showed a strong signature of adaptive evolution which is caused by Darwinian positive selection

Refinement of the NHS locus on chromosome Xp22.13 and analysis of five candidate genes.
Franco et al., Tours, France. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2002
Direct sequencing or SSCP analysis of the coding exons of five genes (SCML1, SCML2, STK9, RS1 and PPEF1), considered as candidate genes on the basis of their location in the critical interval, failed to detect any mutation in 12 unrelated NHS patients, thus making it highly unlikely that these genes are implicated in NHS.
