Subcategory (RNA class) for PTENP1 Gene
Aliases for PTENP1 Gene
The phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) gene encodes a tumor suppressor that functions by negatively regulating the AKT/PKB signaling pathway. A highly homologous processed pseudogene of PTEN is found on chromosome 9 and regulates PTEN by both sense and antisense RNAs (Gene ID: 101243555). This long-noncoding RNA (lncRNA) acts as a decoy for PTEN targeting microRNAs and also exerts a tumor suppressive activity. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2013]
