Summaries for TRIM66 Gene

GeneCards Summary for TRIM66 Gene

TRIM66 (Tripartite Motif Containing 66) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and chromatin binding. An important paralog of this gene is TRIM33.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRIM66 Gene

  • May function as transcription repressor; The repressive effects are mediated, at least in part, by recruitment of deacetylase activity. May play a role as negative regulator of postmeiotic genes acting through CBX3 complex formation and centromere association (By similarity).
