Summaries for Albinism, Oculocutaneous, Type Vi

OMIM : 53 Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) is a heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder, with a worldwide prevalence of approximately 1:17,000. It manifests as a reduction or complete loss of melanin in the skin, hair, and eyes, often accompanied by eye symptoms such as photophobia, strabismus, moderate to severe visual impairment, and nystagmus (summary by Wei et al., 2013). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of oculocutaneous albinism, see OCA1 (203100). For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of variation in skin, hair, and eye pigmentation, see SHEP1 (227220). (113750)

MalaCards based summary : Albinism, Oculocutaneous, Type Vi, also known as oca6, is related to oculocutaneous albinism and albinism, and has symptoms including photophobia, nystagmus and reduced visual acuity. An important gene associated with Albinism, Oculocutaneous, Type Vi is SLC24A5 (Solute Carrier Family 24 Member 5). Affiliated tissues include eye and skin.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Albinism, oculocutaneous, 6: A disorder characterized by a reduction or complete loss of melanin in the skin, hair and eyes. Patients show reduced or lacking pigmentation often accompanied by eye symptoms such as photophobia, strabismus, moderate to severe visual impairment, and nystagmus.
