Summaries for TNS1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TNS1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene localizes to focal adhesions, regions of the plasma membrane where the cell attaches to the extracellular matrix. This protein crosslinks actin filaments and contains a Src homology 2 (SH2) domain, which is often found in molecules involved in signal transduction. This protein is a substrate of calpain II. A second transcript from this gene has been described, but its full length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TNS1 Gene

TNS1 (Tensin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TNS1 include bannayan-riley-ruvalcaba syndrome and ruvalcaba syndrome.
