Summaries for LCORL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LCORL Gene

  • This gene encodes a transcription factor that appears to function in spermatogenesis. Polymorphisms in this gene are associated with measures of skeletal frame size and adult height. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for LCORL Gene

LCORL (Ligand Dependent Nuclear Receptor Corepressor Like) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is LCOR.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LCORL Gene

  • May act as transcription activator that binds DNA elements with the sequence 5-CCCTATCGATCGATCTCTACCT-3. May play a role in spermatogenesis (By similarity).
