Summaries for FAM3A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FAM3A Gene

  • This gene encodes a cytokine-like protein. The expression of this gene may be regulated by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, and the encoded protein may be involved in the regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
