Summaries for LINS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LINS1 Gene

  • The Drosophila segment polarity gene lin encodes a protein, lines, which plays important roles in development of the epidermis and hindgut. This gene encodes a protein containing a lines-like domain. This gene is located on chromosome 15 and clustered with the gene encoding ankyrin repeat and SOCS box-containing protein 7. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2017]
