Relevance to Autism
Seven protein-truncating variants in the UBR1 gene were identified in case samples from the Danish iPSYCH study (Satterstrom et al., 2020). TADA analysis of de novo variants from the Simons Simplex Collection and the Autism Sequencing Consortium and protein-truncating variants from iPSYCH in Satterstrom et al., 2020 identified UBR1 as a candidate gene with a false discovery rate (FDR) between 0.05 and 0.1 (0.05 < FDR 0.1).
The N-end rule pathway is one proteolytic pathway of the ubiquitin system. The recognition component of this pathway, encoded by this gene, binds to a destabilizing N-terminal residue of a substrate protein and participates in the formation of a substrate-linked multiubiquitin chain. This leads to the eventual degradation of the substrate protein. Homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in this gene are responsible for Johanson-Blizzard syndrome (OMIM 243800), an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by poor growth, mental retardation, and variable dysmorphic features, including aplasia or hypoplasia of the nasal alae, abnormal hair patterns or scalp defects, and oligodontia.
