Summaries for NNAT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NNAT Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a proteolipid that may be involved in the regulation of ion channels during brain development. The encoded protein may also play a role in forming and maintaining the structure of the nervous system. This gene is found within an intron of another gene, bladder cancer associated protein, but on the opposite strand. This gene is imprinted and is expressed only from the paternal allele.

GeneCards Summary for NNAT Gene

NNAT (Neuronatin) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NNAT include Anterior Horn Cell Disease.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NNAT Gene

  • May participate in the maintenance of segment identity in the hindbrain and pituitary development, and maturation or maintenance of the overall structure of the nervous system. May function as a regulatory subunit of ion channels.
