Summaries for FAM57B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FAM57B Gene

  • This gene encodes a transmembrane protein, which may be a likely target of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma). The product of the orthologous gene in mouse is related to obesity. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2016]
