Summaries for NDN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NDN Gene

  • This intronless gene is located in the Prader-Willi syndrome deletion region. It is an imprinted gene and is expressed exclusively from the paternal allele. Studies in mouse suggest that the protein encoded by this gene may suppress growth in postmitotic neurons. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NDN Gene

NDN (Necdin, Melanoma Antigen (MAGE) Family Member) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NDN include prader-willi syndrome and prader-willi syndrome due to paternal deletion of 15q11q13 type 1. Among its related pathways are p75(NTR)-mediated signaling and Adipogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include gamma-tubulin binding. An important paralog of this gene is MAGED1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NDN Gene

  • Growth suppressor that facilitates the entry of the cell into cell cycle arrest. Functionally similar to the retinoblastoma protein it binds to and represses the activity of cell-cycle-promoting proteins such as SV40 large T antigen, adenovirus E1A, and the transcription factor E2F. Necdin also interacts with p53 and works in an additive manner to inhibit cell growth. Functions also as transcription factor and binds directly to specific guanosine-rich DNA sequences (By similarity).
