NOBOX causing POF5 611548 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. An ovarian disorder defined as the cessation of ovarian function under the age of 40 years. It is characterized by oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea, in the presence of elevated levels of serum gonadotropins and low estradiol. [read more] 17701902

NOG causing SYM1A 185800 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A disease characterized by the hereditary absence of the proximal interphalangeal joints. Distal interphalangeal joints are less frequently involved and metacarpophalangeal joints are rarely affected whereas carpal bone malformation and fusion are common. In the lower extremities, tarsal bone coalition is common. Conductive hearing loss is seen and is due to fusion of the stapes to the petrous part of the temporal bone. [read more] 10080184

NOP10 causing DKCB1 224230 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A rare multisystem disorder caused by defective telomere maintenance. It is characterized by progressive bone marrow failure, and the clinical triad of reticulated skin hyperpigmentation, nail dystrophy, and mucosal leukoplakia. Common but variable features include premature graying, aplastic anemia, low platelets, osteoporosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and liver fibrosis among others. Early mortality is often associated with bone marrow failure, infections, fatal pulmonary complications, or malignancy. [read more] 17507419
NOP56 causing SCA36 614153 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. Caused by large hexanucleotide CGCCTG repeat expansions within intron 1. These expansions induce RNA foci and sequester the RNA-binding protein SRSF2. In addition, the transcription of MIR1292, a microRNA gene located just 19 bp 3' of the GGCCTG repeat, is significantly decreased. A form of spinocerebellar ataxia, a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA36 is characterized by complicated clinical features, with ataxia as the first symptom, followed by characteristic late-onset involvement of the motor neuron system. Ataxic symptoms, such as gait and truncal instability, ataxic dysarthria, and uncoordinated limbs, start in late forties to fifties. Characteristically, affected individuals exhibit tongue atrophy with fasciculation. Progression of motor neuron involvement is typically limited to the tongue and main proximal skeletal muscles in both upper and lower extremities. [read more] 21683323
NOTCH1 causing AOVD1 109730 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A common defect in the aortic valve in which two rather than three leaflets are present. It is often associated with aortic valve calcification, stenosis and insufficiency. In extreme cases, the blood flow may be so restricted that the left ventricle fails to grow, resulting in hypoplastic left heart syndrome. [read more] 16025100
NPC1 causing NPC1 257220 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. 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 C1 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. An allelic variant of Niemann-Pick disease type C1 is found in people with Nova Scotia ancestry. Patients with the Nova Scotian clinical variant are less severely affected. [read more] 9211849

NPC2 causing NPDC2 607625 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. 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.

NPRL2 PubMed:23723238 Inactivating mutations and truncating deletions in the genes encoding GATOR1 proteins, including NPRL2, are detected in glioblastoma and ovarian tumors and are associated with loss of heterozygosity events. Inactivation of GATOR1 proteins promotes constitutive localization of mTORC1 to the lysosomal membrane and blocks mTORC1 inactivation following amino acid withdrawal (PubMed:23723238). [read more]

NR2E3 causing RP37 611131 The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. [read more] 19006237
