Nephronophthisis type 6 is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the CEP290 gene.
Sayer JA et. al. (2006) The centrosomal protein nephrocystin-6 is mutated in Joubert syndrome and activates transcription factor ATF4.[^]
Valente EM et al. (2006) Mutations in CEP290, which encodes a centrosomal protein, cause pleiotropic forms of Joubert syndrome.[^]
