Involvement in disease
Defects in IFT80 are the cause of asphyxiating thoracic dystrophy type 2 (ATD2) [MIM:611263]. An autosomal recessive chondrodysplasia characterized by a severely constricted thoracic cage, short-limbed short stature, and polydactyly. It often leads to death in infancy because of respiratory insufficiency. Retinal degeneration, cystic renal disease and hepatic disease can be present in affected individuals who survive early childhood.
