Entrez Gene Summary for BCORL1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional corepressor that is found tethered to promoter regions by DNA-binding proteins. The encoded protein can interact with several different class II histone deacetylases to repress transcription. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for BCORL1 Gene

BCORL1 (BCL6 Corepressor-Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is ANKRD11.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BCORL1 Gene

  • Transcriptional corepressor. May specifically inhibit gene expression when recruited to promoter regions by sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins such as BCL6. This repression may be mediated at least in part by histone deacetylase activities which can associate with this corepressor.
