Summaries for MRFAP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MRFAP1 Gene

  • This gene encodes an intracellular protein that interacts with members of the MORF4/MRG (mortality factor on chromosome 4/MORF4 related gene) family and the tumor suppressor Rb (retinoblastoma protein.) The protein may play a role in senescence, cell growth and immortalization. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2013]
