Summaries for FAM168A Gene

GeneCards Summary for FAM168A Gene

FAM168A (Family With Sequence Similarity 168 Member A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FAM168A include Tongue Cancer and Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma. An important paralog of this gene is FAM168B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FAM168A Gene

  • In cancer context, protects cells from induced-DNA damage and apoptosis. Acts, at least in part, through PI3K/AKT/NFKB signaling pathway and by preventing POLB degradation. Decreases POLB ubiquitation and stabilizes its protein levels.
