Summaries for OTOR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OTOR Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the melanoma-inhibiting activity gene family. The encoded protein is secreted via the Golgi apparatus and may function in cartilage development and maintenance. A frequent polymorphism in the translation start codon of this gene can abolish translation and may be associated with forms of deafness. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]
