Summaries for NBR2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NBR2 Gene

  • This gene was identified by its close proximity on chromosome 17 to tumor suppressor gene BRCA1. Experimental evidence indicates that the two genes share a bi-directional promoter. Transcription for either gene is controlled individually by distinct transcriptional repressor factors. A short (112 amino acid) open reading frame is observed which includes a region derived from a LINE1 element. A strong Kozak signal is not observed for the putative ORF and the stop codon is more than 55 bases upstream of the last splice site for the transcript suggesting that the transcript is subject to nonsense-mediated decay. Therefore, this gene does not appear to encode a protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

    • BRCA1 and NBR2 genes may be coregulated, depending on the relative abundance of specific transcription factors. When balance between expression of the two genes is disrupted, abnormal cell growth and differentiation may occur
