Summaries for BOLA2B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BOLA2B Gene

  • This gene is located within a region of a segmental duplication on chromosome 16 and is identical to BOLA2 (bolA family member 2). The product of this gene belongs to a family of proteins that are widely conserved and may be involved in iron maturation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]
