Summaries for MAGEC1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAGEC1 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the melanoma antigen gene (MAGE) family. The proteins of this family are tumor-specific antigens that can be recognized by autologous cytolytic T lymphocytes. This protein contains a large number of unique short repetitive sequences in front of the MAGE-homologous sequence, and therefore is about 800 aa longer than the other MAGE proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MAGEC1 Gene

MAGEC1 (MAGE Family Member C1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAGEC1 include Melanoma and Mucosal Melanoma. An important paralog of this gene is MAGEC2.
