Summaries for SGTA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SGTA Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein which is capable of interacting with the major nonstructural protein of parvovirus H-1 and 70-kDa heat shock cognate protein; however, its function is not known. Since this transcript is expressed ubiquitously in various tissues, this protein may serve a housekeeping function. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SGTA Gene
