Summaries for MTMR9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MTMR9 Gene

  • This gene encodes a myotubularin-related protein that is atypical to most other members of the myotubularin-related protein family because it has no dual-specificity phosphatase domain. The encoded protein contains a double-helical motif similar to the SET interaction domain, which is thought to have a role in the control of cell proliferation. In mouse, a protein similar to the encoded protein binds with MTMR7, and together they dephosphorylate phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate and inositol 1,3-bisphosphate. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MTMR9 Gene

MTMR9 (Myotubularin Related Protein 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MTMR9 include keratolytic winter erythema and generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme regulator activity and phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MTMR2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MTMR9 Gene

  • Probable pseudophosphatase. Contains a Gly residue instead of a conserved Cys residue in the dsPTPase catalytic loop which renders it catalytically inactive as a phosphatase (Potential).
