Summaries for ING1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ING1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a tumor suppressor protein that can induce cell growth arrest and apoptosis. The encoded protein is a nuclear protein that physically interacts with the tumor suppressor protein TP53 and is a component of the p53 signaling pathway. Reduced expression and rearrangement of this gene have been detected in various cancers. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ING1 Gene

ING1 (Inhibitor Of Growth Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ING1 include Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Head And Neck and Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
