Summaries for CT45A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CT45A2 Gene

  • This gene represents one of a cluster of several similar genes located on the q arm of chromosome X. The genes in this cluster encode members of the cancer/testis (CT) family of antigens, and are distinct from other CT antigens. These antigens are thought to be novel therapeutic targets for human cancers. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
