Aliases for ENOSF1 Gene
This gene was originally identified as a naturally occurring antisense transcript to the human thymidylate synthase gene. Alternate splice variants have been described, one of which (named rTSalpha) represents an alternate 3'UTR that is complementary to the 3'UTR and terminal intron of the thymidylate synthase (TS) RNA and down-regulates TS expression. Other transcript variants (rTSbeta and rTSgamma) do not overlap the TS locus. The function of this gene appears to be primarily to regulate expression of the TS locus both via the antisense transcript as well as through the encoded proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
GeneCards Summary for ENOSF1 Gene
ENOSF1 (Enolase Superfamily Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ENOSF1 include rothmund-thomson syndrome and baller-gerold syndrome. Among its related pathways are Fructose and mannose metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and L-fuconate dehydratase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ENOSF1 Gene
Plays a role in the catabolism of L-fucose, a sugar that is part of the carbohydrates that are attached to cellular glycoproteins. Catalyzes the dehydration of L-fuconate to 2-keto-3-deoxy-L-fuconate by the abstraction of the 2-proton to generate an enediolate intermediate that is stabilized by the magnesium ion (PubMed:24697329).
