Summaries for Niemann-Pick Disease, Type C2

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Niemann-Pick disease type C2 is a rare metabolic condition that affects many different parts of the body. Although signs and symptoms can develop at any age (infancy through adulthood), most affected people develop features of the condition during childhood. Neimann-Pick disease type C2 may be characterized by ataxia (difficulty coordinating movements), vertical supranuclear gaze palsy (inability to move the eyes vertically), poor muscle tone, hepatosplenomegaly (enlarged liver and spleen), interstitial lung disease, intellectual decline, seizures, speech problems, and difficulty swallowing. Niemann-Pick disease type C2 is caused by changes (mutations) in the NPC2 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. There is, unfortunately, no cure for Niemann-Pick disease type C2. Treatment is based on the signs and symptoms present in each person.

MalaCards based summary : Niemann-Pick Disease, Type C2, also known as niemann-pick disease type c2, is related to niemann-pick disease, type c1 and multiple mitochondrial dysfunctions syndrome, and has symptoms including seizures, cerebellar ataxia and muscle spasticity. An important gene associated with Niemann-Pick Disease, Type C2 is NPC2 (NPC Intracellular Cholesterol Transporter 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Dimerization of procaspase-8 and Lysosome. The drugs Vorinostat and Glycine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, eye and lung, and related phenotypes are intellectual disability and seizures

Disease Ontology : 12 A Niemann-Pick disease that has material basis in an autosomal recessive mutation of NPC2 on chromosome 14q24.3.

OMIM : 57 Niemann-Pick type C (NPC) disease is an autosomal recessive lipid storage disorder characterized by progressive neurodegeneration. Approximately 95% of cases are caused by mutations in the NPC1 gene (607623), referred to as type C1 (257220); 5% are caused by mutations in the NPC2 gene (601015), referred to as type C2. The clinical manifestations of types C1 (257220) and C2 are similar because the respective genes are both involved in egress of lipids, particularly cholesterol, from late endosomes or lysosomes (summary by Vance, 2006). (607625)

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 75 Niemann-Pick disease C2: A lysosomal storage disorder that affects the viscera and the central nervous system. It is due to defective intracellular processing and transport of low-density lipoprotein derived cholesterol. It causes accumulation of cholesterol in lysosomes, with delayed induction of cholesterol homeostatic reactions. Niemann-Pick disease type C2 has a highly variable clinical phenotype. Clinical features include variable hepatosplenomegaly and severe progressive neurological dysfunction such as ataxia, dystonia and dementia. The age of onset can vary from infancy to late adulthood.
