NIH Rare Diseases:45 Cystinosis is an inherited condition in which the body accumulates the amino acid cystine (a building block of proteins) within the cells. excess cystine forms crystals that can build up and damage cells. these crystals can negatively affect many systems in the body, especially the kidneys and eyes. there are three distinct types of cystinosis: nephropathic cystinosis, intermediate cystinosis, and non-nephropathic or ocular cystinosis. all three types of cystinosis are caused by mutations in the ctns gene and inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. last updated: 11/11/2011
MalaCards based summary: Cystinosis, also known as cystine storage disease, is related to cystinosis, nephropathic and cystinosis, ocular nonnephropathic, and has symptoms including abnormality of the genital system, abnormality of the renal tubule and proteinuria. An important gene associated with Cystinosis is CTNS (Cystinosin, Lysosomal Cystine Transporter). The drugs cysteamine and cysteamine bitartrate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, kidney and thyroid, and related mouse phenotype renal/urinary system.
Disease Ontology:10 A lysosomal storage disease characterized by the abnormal accumulation of cystine in the lysosomes. It follows an autosomal recessive inheritance pattern and is caused by mutations in the CTNS gene, located on chromosome 17.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Cystinosis is a condition characterized by accumulation of the amino acid cystine (a building block of proteins) within cells. Excess cystine damages cells and often forms crystals that can build up and cause problems in many organs and tissues. The kidneys and eyes are especially vulnerable to damage; the muscles, thyroid, pancreas, and testes may also be affected.
