The official name of this gene is “HCLS1 binding protein 3.”
HS1BP3 is the gene's official symbol. The HS1BP3 gene is also known by other names, listed below.
The HS1BP3 gene provides instructions for making a protein called hematopoietic-specific protein 1 binding protein 3. This protein is believed to help regulate chemical signaling in the brain region involved in coordinating movements (the cerebellum) and in specialized nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control the muscles (motor neurons).
Some studies have found a particular variant of the HS1BP3 gene to be associated with essential tremor. In an HS1BP3 gene variant seen in some families affected by this disorder, the protein building block (amino acid) alanine is replaced by the amino acid glycine at position 265 (written as Ala265Gly or A265G). This variant has also been found in unaffected people, however, and it is unknown what relationship, if any, this genetic change may have to the signs and symptoms of this condition.
Cytogenetic Location: 2p24.1
