Summaries for RNF121 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RNF121 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains a RING finger, a motif present in a variety of functionally distinct proteins and known to be involved in protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been noted for this gene, however, not all are likely to encode viable protein products. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2008]
