Previous GeneCards Identifiers for DPPA5 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that may function in the control of cell pluripotency and early embryogenesis. Expression of this gene is a specific marker for pluripotent stem cells. Pseudogenes of this gene are located on the short arm of chromosome 10 and the long arm of chromosomes 14 and 19. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
