Summaries for PWP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PWP1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains several WD-40 repeats and is found mostly in the nucleus. The expression and localization of this protein are cell cycle dependent. Expression of this gene is upregulated in pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
