Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MLXIP Gene
This gene encodes a protein that functions as part of a heterodimer to activate transcription. The encoded protein forms a heterodimer with Max-like protein X (MLX) and is involved in the regulation of genes in response to cellular glucose levels. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]
