UbiA prenyltransferase domain containing 1
UBIAD1, TERE1, UbiA prenyltransferase domain-containing protein 1
This gene encodes a protein thought to be involved in cholesterol and phospholipid metabolism. Mutations in this gene are associated with Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008] (from

In humans, missense mutations to the protein UbiA prenyltransferase domain-containing 1 (UBIAD1) are responsible for Schnyder crystalline corneal dystrophy, which is a genetic disease that causes blindness.
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze the corneal morphology features and define mutations in the UbiA prenyltransferase domain-containing 1 (UBIAD1) gene in patients with Schnyder corneal dystrophy from a Polish population.
