Data provide evidence for a role of TUBA8 in hepatic fibrogenesis and malignancies making it a novel player in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma pathology.
Mistargeting of peroxisomal EHHADH (show EHHADH Proteins) disrupts mitochondrial metabolism and leads to renal Fanconi's syndrome; this indicates a central role of mitochondria in proximal tubular function.
TUBA8 can play a role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, and cell migration in a cell-specific manner in vitro.
TUBA8 is expressed at low levels in the developing human brain.
Mutation of the variant alpha-tubulin (show TUBA4A Proteins) TUBA8 results in polymicrogyria with optic nerve hypoplasia.
Tuba8 is expressed at low levels in the developing mouse brain.
The protein encoded by this gene is a bifunctional enzyme and is one of the four enzymes of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway. The N-terminal region of the encoded protein contains enoyl-CoA hydratase activity while the C-terminal region contains 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity. Defects in this gene are a cause of peroxisomal disorders such as Zellweger syndrome. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
