Summaries for Cataract 9, Multiple Types

About this section
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:70 Cataract 9, multiple types: An opacification of the crystalline lens of the eye that frequently results in visual impairment or blindness. Opacities vary in morphology, are often confined to a portion of the lens, and may be static or progressive. In general, the more posteriorly located and dense an opacity, the greater the impact on visual function. CTRCT9 includes nuclear, zonular central nuclear, anterior polar, cortical, embryonal, anterior subcapsular, fan-shaped, and total cataracts, among others. In some cases cataract is associated with microcornea without any other systemic anomaly or dysmorphism. Microcornea is defined by a corneal diameter inferior to 10 mm in both meridians in an otherwise normal eye.

MalaCards based summary: Cataract 9, Multiple Types, also known as cataract, autosomal recessive congenital 1, is related to congenital cataracts, facial dysmorphism, and neuropathy and congenital cataracts, hearing loss, and neurodegeneration, and has symptoms including microcornea, strabismus and glaucoma. An important gene associated with Cataract 9, Multiple Types is CRYAA (Crystallin Alpha A). Affiliated tissues include eye, and related mouse phenotypes are Increased viability with SS1P at EC90 and vision/eye.

Disease Ontology:11 A cataract that has material basis in heterozygous or homozygous mutation in the CRYAA gene, which encodes alpha-A-crystallin, on chromosome 21q22.

OMIM:52 Mutations in the CRYAA gene have been found to cause multiple types of cataract, which have been described as nuclear,... (604219) more...
