Summaries for FAM136A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FAM136A Gene

  • This gene encodes a mitochondrially localized protein that is highly conserved across species. The gene is expressed in a variety of tissues including human lymphoblast cells and rat neurosensorial epithelium of the cristaampullaris. A mutation in this gene has been associated with familial Meniere's disease, a chronic disorder of the inner ear. Several pseudogenes of this gene are found on other chromosomes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]
