Bardet-Biedl syndrome 9 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BBS9 gene.[1][2]

The expression of the Bardet-Biedl syndrome 9 protein is downregulated by parathyroid hormone in osteoblastic cells, and therefore, is thought to be involved in parathyroid hormone action in bones.[3]

Mutations in this gene are associated with the Bardet-Biedl syndrome.[2]
