Gene RIF (22)

26296657 pVHL interacts with CERKL and ubiquitinates it for oxygen dependent proteasomal degradation.
24735978 CERKL interacts with TRX2 and plays a novel key role in the regulation of the TRX2 antioxidant pathway.
24547929 The initial presenting features of CERKL-related retinopathy are distinct and unusual. Recognition of this initial presenting phenotype can facilitate earlier molecular diagnosis and genetic counseling.
21508105 An unexpected multiplicity of CERKL transcriptional start sites (four in each species) plus a high variety of alternative splicing events primarily affecting the 5' half of the gene generate >20 fully validated mRNA isoforms in human and 23 in mouse.

19667359 Our data indicate that compound heterozygous mutations of CERKL can cause RP.
19578027 CERKL mutations are associated with widespread retinal degeneration with prominent maculopathy.
19501188 The Pleckstrin Homology (PH) domain of CERK, which is required for Golgi complex localization, can substitute for the N-terminal region of CERKL and allow for wild-type CERKL localization, which is typified by nucleolar accumulation.
19158957 Retinitis pigmentosa gene ceramide kinase-like (CERKL) was analyzed to determine CERKL function and contribution to pathogenesis.
18978954 This is the third reported mutation in CERKL causing retinal degeneration but is the first report to show that a single amino acid change in CERKL, rather than a null mutation, can cause retinal disease.
18521091 Genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18519826 Clinical trial and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
18515597 This study presents the first genotype-phenotype correlation for persons carrying p.Arg257ter mutation and provides clues for a characteristic phenotype of these mutations among persons with autosomal recessive cases.
18055789 c.238+1G>A is the second reported mutation of CERKL and is a prevalent founder mutation that underlies approximately 33% of autosomal recessive retinal degeneration cases in the Yemenite Jewish population.
16581028 Identification of a nuclear localization signal that might be responsible for nucleolar retention of CERKL.
15708351 Data suggest a functional link between CERKL, a new ceramide kinase homolog, and its nucleolar localization.
