Summaries for LIN9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LIN9 Gene

  • This gene encodes a tumor suppressor protein that inhibits DNA synthesis and oncogenic transformation through association with the retinoblastoma 1 protein. The encoded protein also interacts with a complex of other cell cycle regulators to repress cell cycle-dependent gene expression in non-dividing cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

GeneCards Summary for LIN9 Gene

LIN9 (Lin-9 DREAM MuvB Core Complex Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LIN9 include Algoneurodystrophy. Among its related pathways are Regulation of PLK1 Activity at G2/M Transition and Cell Cycle, Mitotic.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LIN9 Gene

  • Acts as a tumor suppressor. Inhibits DNA synthesis. Its ability to inhibit oncogenic transformation is mediated through its association with RB1. Plays a role in the expression of genes required for the G1/S transition.

    Molecular mass:
    61946 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the DREAM complex (also named LINC complex) at least composed of E2F4, E2F5, LIN9, LIN37, LIN52, LIN54, MYBL1, MYBL2, RBL1, RBL2, RBBP4, TFDP1 and TFDP2. The complex exists in quiescent cells where it represses cell cycle-dependent genes. It dissociates in S phase when LIN9, LIN37, LIN52 and LIN54 form a subcomplex that binds to MYBL2. Interacts with RB1.
