Summaries for WDR27 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR27 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with multiple WD repeats. Proteins with these repeats may form scaffolds for protein-protein interaction and play key roles in cell signalling. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, but the full-length structure of some of these variants cannot be determined. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
