Summaries for MELTF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MELTF Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a cell-surface glycoprotein found on melanoma cells. The protein shares sequence similarity and iron-binding properties with members of the transferrin superfamily. The importance of the iron binding function has not yet been identified. This gene resides in the same region of chromosome 3 as members of the transferrin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MELTF Gene

MELTF (Melanotransferrin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MELTF include Chromosome 3Q29 Microdeletion Syndrome. An important paralog of this gene is TF.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MELTF Gene

  • Involved in iron cellular uptake. Seems to be internalized and then recycled back to the cell membrane. Binds a single atom of iron per subunit. Could also bind zinc.
