Summaries for C1orf56 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for C1orf56 Gene

  • This gene is a proto-oncogene whose promoter is methylated by DNA methyltransferase 3B (DNMT3B), which represses the proto-oncogene. However, a catalytically inactive isoform of DNMT3B is overexpressed in lymphomas, leading to hypomethylation of the proto-oncogene's promoter and derepression of the proto-oncogene.
