Summaries for FIRRE Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FIRRE Gene

  • This gene produces a long RNA containing a repeating sequence. This RNA interacts with heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein U and coats chromosomes, where it plays an important role in the maintenance of repressive chromatin. This transcript can also act post-transcriptionally to regulate the stability of mRNAs during the innate immune response. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2017]
