Summaries for MAGEA6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAGEA6 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the MAGEA gene family. The members of this family encode proteins with 50 to 80% sequence identity to each other. The promoters and first exons of the MAGEA genes show considerable variability, suggesting that the existence of this gene family enables the same function to be expressed under different transcriptional controls. The MAGEA genes are clustered at chromosomal location Xq28. They have been implicated in some hereditary disorders, such as dyskeratosis congenita. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]

GeneCards Summary for MAGEA6 Gene

MAGEA6 (Melanoma Antigen Family A6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAGEA6 include terminal osseous dysplasia and dyskeratosis congenita. An important paralog of this gene is MAGED1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAGEA6 Gene

  • Proposed to enhance ubiquitin ligase activity of RING-type zinc finger-containing E3 ubiquitin-protein ligases. May enhance ubiquitin ligase activity of TRIM28 and stimulate p53/TP53 ubiquitination by TRIM28. Proposed to act through recruitment and/or stabilization of the Ubl-conjugating enzyme (E2) at the E3:substrate complex. May play a role in tumor transformation or aspects of tumor progression. In vitro promotes cell viability in melanoma cell lines.
