The protein encoded by this gene is localized in the endoplasmic reticulum and is involved in cholesterol biosynthesis. Mutations in this gene are associated with CHILD syndrome, which is a X-linked dominant disorder of lipid metabolism with disturbed cholesterol biosynthesis, and typically lethal in males. Alternatively spliced transcript variants with differing 5' UTR have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

NSDHL-Related Disorders
Boerkoel et al., Seattle, United States. In Unknown Journal, 2011
CLINICAL CHARACTERISTICS: The NSDHL-related disorders include: CHILD (congenital hemidysplasia with ichthyosiform nevus and limb defects) syndrome, an X-linked dominant condition that is usually male lethal during gestation and thus predominantly affects females; and CK syndrome, an X-linked recessive disorder that affects males.
