Summaries for MGMT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MGMT Gene

  • Alkylating agents are potent carcinogens that can result in cell death, mutation and cancer. The protein encoded by this gene is a DNA repair protein that is involved in cellular defense against mutagenesis and toxicity from alkylating agents. The protein catalyzes transfer of methyl groups from O(6)-alkylguanine and other methylated moieties of the DNA to its own molecule, which repairs the toxic lesions. Methylation of the genes promoter has been associated with several cancer types, including colorectal cancer, lung cancer, lymphoma and glioblastoma. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

GeneCards Summary for MGMT Gene

MGMT (O-6-Methylguanine-DNA Methyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MGMT include spinal cord astrocytoma and glioblastoma. Among its related pathways are DNA Double-Strand Break Repair and p53 Pathway (RnD). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and damaged DNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MGMT Gene

  • Involved in the cellular defense against the biological effects of O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG) in DNA. Repairs alkylated guanine in DNA by stoichiometrically transferring the alkyl group at the O-6 position to a cysteine residue in the enzyme. This is a suicide reaction: the enzyme is irreversibly inactivated.

Tocris Summary for MGMT Gene

  • Protein arginine methyltransferases are enyzmes that catalyze the transfer of methyl groups from S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) to the arginine residues on histones and other proteins. The dysregulation of this methylation is critical in the development of certain cancers.
