Summaries for HIGD1B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HIGD1B Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the hypoxia inducible gene 1 (HIG1) domain family. The encoded protein is localized to the cell membrane and has been linked to tumorigenesis and the progression of pituitary adenomas. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]
