Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FILNC1 Gene
This gene produces a long non-coding RNA that is induced by forkhead box O proteins and plays a role in stress-induced apoptosis. Knock down of transcripts at this locus results in increased renal tumor growth and alteration in genes involved in glucose metabolism. This RNA interacts with heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein D and prevents it from binding to Myc mRNA, therefore suppressing Myc activity. Alternative splicing and transcriptional start site usage results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2017]
