Involvement in disease
Defects in STOX1 are the cause of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia 4 (PEE4) [MIM:609404]; also known as gestational proteinuric hypertension. Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-associated disease with maternal symptoms but placental origin. Unlike most other human disorders, it impacts 2 individuals, the mother and her child, both of whom can be severely affected. The pathological mechanism of PEE4 involves the loss of function of STOX1 in the placenta.
