Entrez Gene Summary for NPAP1 Gene

  • This gene is located in the Prader-Willi syndrome region on chromosome 15. This gene is biallelically expressed in adult testis and brain but is paternally imprinted in fetal brain. Defects in this gene may be associated with Prader-Willi syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]
