Gene RIF (34)

26033718 The extracellular domain of GlialCAM is necessary for cell junction targeting and for mediating interactions with itself or with MLC1 and ClC-2.
25919557 Gene sequencing identified two heterozygous mutations of MLC1, including missense mutation in exon 3 (c.217G>A, p.Gly73Arg) and splice site mutation in intron 9 (c.772-1G>C in IVS9-1).
25497041 Eight novel mutations in MLC1 from 18 Iranian patients with megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy with subcortical cysts
24824219 we demonstrate an evolutionary conserved role for MLC1 in regulating glial surface levels of GLIALCAM, and this interrelationship explains why patients with mutations in either gene (MLC1 or GLIALCAM) share the same clinical phenotype.
24561067 This study shows that in astrocytes MLC1 is expressed in early endosomes and recycled through the Rab11+ perinuclear compartment
24315536 clinical spectrum, neuroimaging characteristics and gene involvement in Egyptian patients with megalencephalic leukoencephalopathy with subcortical cysts; deletion/insertion mutation in exon 11 was recurrent in 2 families; a missense mutation in exon 10 was identified in the third family
23793458 results indicate GlialCAM is necessary for MLC1 protein expression, and its reduction affects the activity of volume-regulated anion currents (VRAC) which may cause astrocyte vacuolation; work extends the role of GlialCAM as a chaperone of MLC1 needed for proper VRAC activation
23495687 Proposed is a therapeutic approach for prevention of cardiac contractile dysfunction dependent on MLC1 phosphorylation and degradation.
22416245 Data show that wildtype MLC1(wt) was localized to the cell periphery, whereas mutant R22Q, A32V, G73E, S69L and T118M were trapped in the lumen of endoplasmic reticulum (ER).
22328087 that MLC1 plays a role in astrocyte osmo-homeostasis and that defects in intracellular calcium dynamics may contribute to MLC pathogenesis.
