MGI curation of this mouse gene is considered complete, including annotations derived from the biomedical literature as of October 10, 2013. If you know of any additional information regarding this mouse gene please let us know. Please supply mouse gene symbol and a PubMed ID.Summary from NCBI RefSeq
[Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is part of a complex that is involved in membrane trafficking. The encoded protein is a molecular chaperone that aids in protein folding upon ATP hydrolysis. This protein also plays a role in adipocyte differentiation. Defects in this gene are a cause of Bardet-Biedl syndrome type 12. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.

Researchers have inferred, based on phenotypic analysis of mouse mutants, that the gene product of Bbs12
participates in the following biological processes:
Annotations directly to for the gene Bbs12 indicate that MGI curators have found no experimental data [literature] to support further annotation to this category at this time.
