26900326 We identified a novel H395R substitution in MKKS/BBS6 that results in a unique phenotype of only retinitis pigmentosa and polydactyly.
24400638 we report here, for the first time, in Indian population, a novel, different profile of mutations in BBS genes (BBS3, BBS9, BBS10 and BBS2) compared to worldwide (BBS1 and 10) reports.
23716571 Findings indicate that Bbs proteins play a central role in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton and control the cilia length through alteration of RhoA levels.
23671934 Three uORFs (uMKKS0, uMKKS1 and uMKKS2) are reported, and they can repress the translation of the downstream MKKS ORF. uMKKS1 and uMKKS2 are highly conserved in mammals and they encode two different mitochondrial membrane proteins respectively.
23432027 Novel mutation (c.1272+1G>A) in BBS6 found in Tunisian families with Bardet-Biedl syndrome.
20801516 Observational study of genetic testing. (HuGE Navigator)
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20472660 Using sequence analysis, the role of BBS6, 10 and 12 was assessed in a Bardet-Biedl syndrome patient population comprising 93 cases from 74 families.
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19876004 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19247371 genetic variations at MKKS gene influence the risk of metabolic syndrome
19077438 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
18813213 results suggest that genetic variation in the MKKS gene may play a role in the development of obesity and the metabolic syndrome.
18813213 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18094050 These results indicate that the MKKS mutants have an abnormal conformation and that chaperone-dependent degradation mediated by CHIP is a key feature of McKusick-Kaufman syndrome/Bardet-Biedl syndrome diseases.
17003356 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15731008 MKKS/BBS6 is a novel centrosomal component required for cytokinesis
15483080 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
12837689 The presence of three mutant alleles in the BBS family correlates with a more severe Bardet-Biedl phenotype.
11567139 Unaffected individuals in 2 pedigrees had 2 but not all 3 mutations that affecteds had which suggests that Bardet-Biedle syndrome might not be a single-gene recessive disease but a complex trait requiring three mutant alleles to manifest the phenotype.
