Also known as: MR1; PDC; DYT8; FPD1; MR-1; BRP17; PKND1; PNKD1; FKSG19; TAHCCP2; KIPP1184


This gene is thought to play a role in the regulation of myofibrillogenesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with the movement disorder paroxysmal non-kinesigenic dyskinesia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
