Intraflagellar transport protein 80 homolog (IFT80), also known as WD repeat-containing protein 56, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IFT80 gene.[1][2]


IFT80 is part of the intraflagellar transport complex B and is necessary for the function of motile and sensory cilia.[1]

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in the IFT80 gene are associated with asphyxiating thoracic dysplasia.[2]
