Summaries for LACRT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LACRT Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is highly expressed in the lacrimal glands and localized primarily to secretory granules and secretory fluid. It augments lacrimal acinar cell secretion, promotes ductal cell proliferation, and stimulates signaling through tyrosine phosphorylation and release of calcium. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
