HUGO Symbol: COMMD7-DNMT3B Full Name: N/A
Exons: N/A Introns: N/A

COMMD7 (COMM domain containing 7) belongs to a protein family defined by the presence of a C-terminal motif, the COMM domain, that mediates protein-protein interactions. It is highly expressed in the lung and interacts with subunits of the nuclear factor (NF)-κB complex. It appers to play a role in NF-κB signalling and inflammation. DNMT3B (DNA methyltransferase 3 beta) is a DNA methyltransferase, which appears to function in de novo methylation, rather than maintenance methylation. It is important for development. Genetic variance in the COMMD7-DNMT3B intergenic region associated with acute chest syndrome (ACS) in patients with sickle cell disease. ACS is a form of acute lung injury caused by vaso-occlusion within the pulmonary microvasculature. Etiologies either trigger vaso-occlusion (e.g., infection, asthma, hypoventilation) or are a result of vaso-occlusion (e.g., bone marrow and fat emboli).
