NBEA, Neurobeachin, BCL8B, KIAA1544
This gene encodes a member of a large, diverse group of A-kinase anchor proteins that target the activity of protein kinase A to specific subcellular sites by binding to its type II regulatory subunits. Brain-specific expression and coat protein-like membrane recruitment of a highly similar protein in mouse suggest an involvement in neuronal post-Golgi membrane traffic. Mutations in this gene may be associated with a form of autism. This gene and its expression are frequently disrupted in patients with multiple myeloma. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Additional transcript variants may exist, but their full-length nature has not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011] (from NCBI)

Moens et al., Seattle, United States. In Curr Biol, Feb 2015
RESULTS: Here, using a forward genetic screen in zebrafish, we find that the autism-associated gene neurobeachin (nbea), which encodes a BEACH-domain-containing protein implicated in endomembrane trafficking, is required for both electrical and chemical synapse formation.
Prognostic significance of decreased expression of six large common fragile site genes in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas.
Smith et al., Rochester, United States. In Transl Oncol, 2014
RNA sequencing previously revealed that there was a group of six large CFS genes which frequently had decreased expression in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas (OPSCCs) and real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction experiments validated that these six large CFS genes (PARK2, DLG2, NBEA, CTNNA3, DMD, and FHIT) had decreased expression in most of the tumor samples.
Platelet studies in autism spectrum disorder patients and first-degree relatives.
Freson et al., Leuven, Belgium. In Mol Autism, 2014
Altered platelet dense granule morphology was previously reported in three autism spectrum disorder (ASD) patients with chromosomal translocations that disrupted ASD candidate genes NBEA, SCAMP5, and AMYSIN, but a systematic analysis of platelet function in ASD is lacking in contrast to numerous reports of elevated serotonin levels in platelets and blood as potential biomarker for ASD.
Genome wide association study identifies variants in NBEA associated with migraine in bipolar disorder.
IHG Consortium Co-Authors include et al., Bergen, Norway. In J Affect Disord, 2014
CONCLUSIONS: NBEA encodes neurobeachin, a scaffolding protein primarily expressed in the brain and involved in trafficking of vesicles containing neurotransmitter receptors.
A selected group of large common fragile site genes have decreased expression in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas.

The BEACH is hot: a LYST of emerging roles for BEACH-domain containing proteins in human disease.
Huizing et al., Bethesda, United States. In Traffic, 2013
BDCP alterations affect lysosome size (LYST and NSMAF), apoptosis (NSMAF), autophagy (LYST, WDFY3, LRBA), granule size (LYST, NBEAL2, NBEA) or synapse formation (NBEA).

Albani et al., Milano, Italy. In Neurobiol Aging, 2013
Rs6720975 maps in the intronic region of PRKCE, a protein kinase involved in several cellular functions, whereas rs17798800 is intergenic and, according to expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) analysis, it acts as a cis-regulator of NBEA, an A kinase-anchoring protein playing a substantial role in the maturation of the nervous system.
Neurobeachin regulates neurotransmitter receptor trafficking to synapses.
Rhee et al., Göttingen, Germany. In J Cell Biol, 2013
We found that neurons lacking the BEACH (beige-Chediak/Higashi) domain protein Neurobeachin (Nbea) had strongly reduced synaptic responses caused by a reduction in surface levels of glutamate and GABA(A) receptors.
