Summaries for THEG Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for THEG Gene

  • This gene is specifically expressed in the nucleus of haploid male germ cells. The orthologous gene in mice encodes a protein that may play a role in protein assembly through interactions with T-complex protein 1 subunit epsilon. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]
