Summaries for Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome 6

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome 6: A form of Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome, a genetically heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder characterized by oculocutaneous albinism, bleeding due to platelet storage pool deficiency, and lysosomal storage defects. This syndrome results from defects of diverse cytoplasmic organelles including melanosomes, platelet dense granules and lysosomes. Ceroid storage in the lungs is associated with pulmonary fibrosis, a common cause of premature death in individuals with HPS.

MalaCards based summary : Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome 6, also known as hps6, is related to isolated delta-storage pool disease and hermansky-pudlak syndrome 2, and has symptoms including epistaxis, ocular albinism and albinism. An important gene associated with Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome 6 is HPS6 (HPS6, Biogenesis Of Lysosomal Organelles Complex 2 Subunit 3). The drugs Pirfenidone and Analgesics have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung and skin, and related phenotypes are craniofacial and integument

Disease Ontology : 12 A Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome that has material basis in homozygous or compound heterozygous mutation in the HPS6 gene on chromosome 10q24.
