WD repeat-containing protein 35

The WDR35 gene encodes a protein that is involved in various cell regulation processes. Diseases associated with that gene suggest a possible role in ciliary function. Mutations cause autosomal recessive disorders such as cranioectodermal dysplasia 2 and Short-rib thoracic dysplasia with or without polydactyly 7.
