Summaries for DMXL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DMXL1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the WD repeat superfamily of proteins, which have regulatory functions. This gene is expressed in many tissue types including several types of eye tissue, and it has been associated with ocular phenotypes. In addition, it is upregulated in cultured cells that overexpress growth factor independence 1B, a transcription factor that is essential for hematopoietic cell development. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2014]
