Summaries for FMN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FMN1 Gene

  • This gene belongs to the formin homology family and encodes a protein that has a role in the formation of adherens junction and the polymerization of linear actin cables. The homologous gene in mouse is associated with limb deformity. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

GeneCards Summary for FMN1 Gene

FMN1 (Formin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FMN1 include Auditory Neuropathy, Autosomal Dominant, 1 and Sarcomatosis. Among its related pathways are Cell adhesion_Cadherin-mediated cell adhesion and E-cadherin signaling in keratinocytes. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include actin binding and microtubule binding. An important paralog of this gene is FMN2.
