Summaries for NF1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NF1 Gene

  • This gene product appears to function as a negative regulator of the ras signal transduction pathway. Mutations in this gene have been linked to neurofibromatosis type 1, juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia and Watson syndrome. The mRNA for this gene is subject to RNA editing (CGA>UGA->Arg1306Term) resulting in premature translation termination. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have also been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NF1 Gene

NF1 (Neurofibromin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NF1 include neurofibromatosis, type 1 and 17q11.2 microduplication syndrome. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Immune System. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and phosphatidylcholine binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NF1 Gene

  • Stimulates the GTPase activity of Ras. NF1 shows greater affinity for Ras GAP, but lower specific activity. May be a regulator of Ras activity.
