This gene encodes one of seven proteins that form the BBSome complex containing BBS1 BBS2 BBS4 BBS5 BBS7 BBS8 and BBS9. The BBSome complex is believed to recruit Rab8(GTP) to the primary cilium and promote ciliogenesis. The BBSome complex assembly is mediated by a complex composed of three chaperonin-like BBS proteins (BBS6 BBS10 and BBS12) and CCT/TRiC family chaperonins. Mutations in this gene are implicated in Bardet-Biedl syndrome a genetic disorder whose symptoms include obesity retinal degeneration polydactyly and nephropathy; however mutations in this gene and the BBS8 gene are thought to play a minor role and mutations in chaperonin-like BBS genes are found to be a major contributor to disease development in a multiethnic Bardet-Biedl syndrome patient population. Two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.[provided by RefSeq Feb 2011]
