Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TRIM29 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the TRIM protein family. It has multiple zinc finger motifs and a leucine zipper motif. It has been proposed to form homo- or heterodimers which are involved in nucleic acid binding. Thus, it may act as a transcriptional regulatory factor involved in carcinogenesis and/or differentiation. It may also function in the suppression of radiosensitivity since it is associated with ataxia telangiectasia phenotype. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TRIM29 Gene
TRIM29 (Tripartite Motif Containing 29) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRIM29 include Ataxia-Telangiectasia and Ataxia. Among its related pathways are DNA Damage and Interferon gamma signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor activity, sequence-specific DNA binding and p53 binding. An important paralog of this gene is TRIM16.
