Summaries for MAB21L1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAB21L1 Gene

  • This gene is similar to the MAB-21 cell fate-determining gene found in C. elegans. It may be involved in eye and cerebellum development, and it has been proposed that expansion of a trinucleotide repeat region in the 5' UTR may play a role in a variety of psychiatric disorders.
