Summaries for VENTX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for VENTX Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the Vent family of homeodomain proteins. The encoded protein may function as a transcriptional repressor and be involved in mesodermal patterning and hemopoietic stem cell maintenance. Multiple pseudogenes exist for this gene. A transcribed pseudogene located on chromosome X may lead to antigen production in certain melanomas. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
