Summary This gene encodes the multi-pass transmembrane protein protein seipin. This protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and may be important for lipid droplet morphology. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2 or Berardinelli-Seip syndrome, a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by a near absence of adipose tissue and severe insulin resistance. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. Naturally occurring read-through transcription occurs between this locus and the neighboring locus HNRNPUL2 (heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein U-like 2).[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011].

What is the normal function of the BSCL2 gene?

The BSCL2 gene provides instructions for making a protein called seipin, whose function is unknown. Within cells, seipin is found in the membrane of a tube-like structure called the endoplasmic reticulum. The endoplasmic reticulum modifies newly produced proteins and also helps transport proteins, fats, and other molecules to specific sites either inside or outside the cell. The BSCL2 gene is active in cells throughout the body, particularly in nerve cells that control muscle movement (motor neurons) and in brain cells. The gene is also active in fat-storing cells called adipocytes, and studies suggest that seipin may play a critical role in the early development of these cells.
