This gene produces an intronless transcript that is thought to function as a tumor suppressor. This transcript is downregulated in nasopharyngeal carcinoma and is a negative regulator of estrogen receptor signaling. A common polymorphism in this transcript allows the production of a 94 aa open reading frame in some individuals, which may interact directly with estrogen receptor... See more...

Entrez Gene Summary for LINC00312 Gene

  • This gene produces an intronless transcript that is thought to function as a tumor suppressor. This transcript is downregulated in nasopharyngeal carcinoma and is a negative regulator of estrogen receptor signaling. A common polymorphism in this transcript allows the production of a 94 aa open reading frame in some individuals, which may interact directly with estrogen receptor 1 (PMID:15474036). This open reading frame does not exist on the reference genome haplotype, which is hypothesized to function through a non-coding RNA product. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2017]
