Summaries for DSN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DSN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a kinetochore protein that functions as part of the minichromosome instability-12 centromere complex. The encoded protein is required for proper kinetochore assembly and progression through the cell cycle. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

GeneCards Summary for DSN1 Gene
