Human Phosphatidylinositol Glycan Anchor Biosynthesis, Class A (PIGA) interaction partners

  1. Pig-a MFs as measured by the RBC (show CACNA1C Proteins) Pig-a assay for the ENU-treated group increased in a time-dependent manner with the maximum value at week 4; however, those using the PIGRET assay reached comparable values at week 1

  2. A recurrent germline mutation in the PIGA gene causes Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome type 2.

  3. This case reports on a new missense PIGA germline mutation in a Chinese male infant presenting with developmental arrest and multisystemic disorders.

  4. the PIGA mutation in this family likely causes a reduction in GPI (show GNPDA1 Proteins) anchor protein (show CELSR3 Proteins) cell surface expression in various cell types, resulting in the observed pleiotropic phenotype involving central nervous system, skin, and iron metabolism.

  5. Our data strongly suggest that the early frameshift mutation in PIGA produces a truncated hypomorph, which is sufficient to rescue the lethality in males but not the MCAHS2-like phenotype.

  6. The results of this study confirmed that PIGA mutations are one genetic cause of early-onset epileptic encephalopathies, suggesting that GPI (show GNPDA1 Proteins)-anchor deficiencies may be an underlying cause of EOEE.

  7. The small population of PIG-A mutant cells in myelodysplastic syndromes do not arise from multipotent hematopoietic stem cells.

  8. An X chromosome exome next-generation sequencing screen identified a single nonsense PIGA mutation.

  9. loss of PIG-A or a combination of genes within the 0.5 Mb commonly deleted region leads to a phenotype capable of avoiding immune surveillance, but is not inherently malignant.

  10. the PIG-A mutations in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria patients

Mouse (Murine) Phosphatidylinositol Glycan Anchor Biosynthesis, Class A (PIGA) interaction partners

  1. Diet-induced obesity increases the frequency of Pig-a mutant erythrocytes in male C57BL/6J mice.

  2. Single cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE (show SGCE Proteins)) and Pig-a mutation assay in vivo-tools for genotoxicity testing from a regulatory perspective: a study of benzo[a]pyrene in Ogg1 (show OGG1 Proteins)(-/-) mice.

  3. Reduced IgE/antigen-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis is detected in mice with Piga-deficient mast cells.

  4. Deletion of the Pig-a gene in hematopoietic cells does not cause frank marrow failure but leads to the appearance of clonally-restricted, inactive yet functionally competent CD8 (show CD8A Proteins) T cells.

  5. Piga gene mutation does not alter susceptibility to cell death in thymocytes, granulocytes, and hematopoietic progenitor cells.

  6. Pig-a-knockout females are infertile, and eggs recovered from the females after mating are unfertilized.

  7. processing profilaggrin (show FLG Proteins) to its monomeric form was impaired in Pig-a null mouse epidermis

  8. Piga expression is required to properly orient hair cells in the inner ear, a process regulated by the planar cell polarity pathway.

PIGA Protein Profile

Protein Summary

This gene encodes a protein required for synthesis of N-acetylglucosaminyl phosphatidylinositol (GlcNAc-PI), the first intermediate in the biosynthetic pathway of GPI anchor. The GPI anchor is a glycolipid found on many blood cells and which serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, an acquired hematologic disorder, has been shown to result from mutations in this gene. Alternate splice variants have been characterized. A related pseudogene is located on chromosome 12.
