TMEM216 (human)

Overview
TMEM216 Part of the tectonic-like complex which is required for tissue-specific ciliogenesis and may regulate ciliary membrane composition. Defects in TMEM216 are a cause of Joubert syndrome type 2 (JBTS2). JBTS2 is a disorder presenting with cerebellar ataxia, oculomotor apraxia, hypotonia, neonatal breathing abnormalities and psychomotor delay. Neuroradiologically, it is characterized by cerebellar vermian hypoplasia/aplasia, thickened and reoriented superior cerebellar peduncles, and an abnormally large interpeduncular fossa, giving the appearance of a molar tooth on transaxial slices (molar tooth sign). Additional variable features include retinal dystrophy and renal disease. Defects in TMEM216 are the cause of Meckel syndrome type 2 (MKS2). It is a form of Meckel syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder. It is characterized by a combination of renal cysts and variably associated features including developmental anomalies of the central nervous system (typically encephalocele), hepatic ductal dysplasia and cysts, and polydactyly. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
