Summaries for MAGEB3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAGEB3 Gene

  • This gene is a MAGE-B subfamily member of the MAGE gene family. MAGE family member proteins direct the expression of tumor antigens recognized on a human melanoma by autologous cytolytic T lymphocytes. There are two known clusters of MAGE genes on chromosome X. The members of the MAGE-A subfamily are located in the Xq28 region, while the members of the MAGE-B subfamily are clustered in the Xp21 region. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
