TMC8

Official Full Name
transmembrane channel-like 8
Background
Epidermodysplasia verruciformis (EV) is an autosomal recessive dermatosis characterized by abnormal susceptibility to human papillomaviruses (HPVs) and a high rate of progression to squamous cell carcinoma on sun-exposed skin. EV is caused by mutations in either of two adjacent genes located on chromosome 17q25.3. Both of these genes encode integral membrane proteins that localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and are predicted to form transmembrane channels. This gene encodes a transmembrane channel-like protein with 8 predicted transmembrane domains and 3 leucine zipper motifs.
Synonyms
TMC8; transmembrane channel-like 8; epidermodysplasia verruciformis 2 , EVER2; transmembrane channel-like protein 8; EVIN2; epidermodysplasia verruciformis 2; epidermodysplasia verruciformis protein 2; EV2; EVER2; FLJ40668; FLJ43684; MGC40121; MGC102701
