Summaries for MAGED2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAGED2 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the MAGED gene family. The MAGED genes are clustered on chromosome Xp11. This gene is located in Xp11.2, a hot spot for X-linked mental retardation (XLMR). This gene may also be involved in several types of cancer, including breast cancer and melanoma. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
