Gene RIF (2)

23850239 A Japanese family afflicted by X-linked myopathy with excessive autophagy displayed high urinary beta2 microglobulin without renal dysfunction. Decreased urine acidification in the distal convoluted tubules might be caused by the VMA21 gene mutation.
23315026 This study showed that LOC203547 is the human ortholog of Vma21p, and that hypomorphic mutations of the VMA21 gene disrupt autophagy and cause -linked Myopathy with Excessive Autophagy.
