Armadillo repeat-containing protein 5

The ARMC5 gene encodes a protein that is probably involved in protein-protein interactions. Genomic mutations cause autosomal dominant ACTH-independent macronodular adrenal hyperplasia 2. Also somatic mutations occur which usually result in unilateral manifestation.
