Summaries for LMLN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LMLN Gene

  • This gene encodes a zinc-metallopeptidase. The encoded protein may play a role in cell migration and invasion. Studies of a similar protein in Drosophila indicate a potential role in mitotic progression. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

GeneCards Summary for LMLN Gene
