Summaries for SURF6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SURF6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a conserved protein that is localized to the nucleolus. The encoded protein may function as a nucleolar-matrix protein with nucleic acid-binding properties. There is a pseudogene for this gene on chromosome Y. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for SURF6 Gene
