Summaries for Choanal Atresia and Lymphedema

KEGG : 37
Choanal atresia and lymphoedema is a rare congenital malformation caused by loss-of-function mutation in PTPN14 encoding a nonreceptor tyrosine phosphatase. PTPN14 has been shown to interact with the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR3), a receptor tyrosine kinase that is essential for lymphangiogenesis. The mechanism responsible for the development of chanal atresia is not clear but believed to be failure of the breakdown of the bucconasal membrane during embryogenesis.

MalaCards based summary : Choanal Atresia and Lymphedema, also known as catlph, is related to lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome and microcephaly with or without chorioretinopathy, lymphedema, or mental retardation. An important gene associated with Choanal Atresia and Lymphedema is PTPN14 (Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase Non-Receptor Type 14). The drugs Tacrolimus and Polymyxin B have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include breast, lymph node and endothelial, and related phenotypes are high palate and lymphedema

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 74 Choanal atresia and lymphedema: A disease characterized by posterior choanal atresia and lymphedema. Additional features are a high-arched palate, hypoplastic nipples, and mild pectus excavatum.
