Defects in the CUBN gene cause recessive hereditary megaloblastic anemia 1 (RH-MGA1 aka MGA1 Finnish type or Imerslund-Grasbeck syndrome, I-GS; MIM:261100). The Finnish cases described by Grasbeck et al. were caused by defects in CUBN (Grasbeck et al. 1960). The resultant malabsorption of Cbl (cobalamin, vitamin B12) leads to impaired B12-dependent folate metabolism and ultimately impaired thymine synthesis and DNA replication.
