Summaries for IMP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for IMP4 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene, along with IMP3 and MPP10, is part of the 60-80S U3 small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein (U3 snoRNP) complex. This complex is necessary for the early cleavage steps of pre-18S ribosomal RNA processing. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

GeneCards Summary for IMP4 Gene
