Summaries for TMSB4Y Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TMSB4Y Gene

  • This gene lies within the male specific region of chromosome Y. Its homolog on chromosome X escapes X inactivation and encodes an actin sequestering protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TMSB4Y Gene

TMSB4Y (Thymosin Beta 4, Y-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Regulation of actin cytoskeleton. GO annotations related to this gene include actin binding and actin monomer binding. An important paralog of this gene is TMSB4X.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TMSB4Y Gene

  • Plays an important role in the organization of the cytoskeleton. Binds to and sequesters actin monomers (G actin) and therefore inhibits actin polymerization (By similarity).
