Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FHL5 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is coordinately expressed with activator of cAMP-responsive element modulator (CREM). It is associated with CREM and confers a powerful transcriptional activation function. CREM acts as a transcription factor essential for the differentiation of spermatids into mature spermatozoa. There are multiple polyadenylation sites found in this gene. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with susceptibility for migraine headaches. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
