This gene encodes menin, a tumor suppressor associated with a syndrome known as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Menin is a scaffold protein that functions in histone modification and epigenetic gene regulation. It is thought to regulate several pathways and processes by altering chromatin structure through the modification of histones. [provided by RefSeq, May 2019] See more...

CIViC Summary for MEN1 Gene

GeneCards Summary for MEN1 Gene

MEN1 (Menin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MEN1 include Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia, Type I and Insulinoma. Among its related pathways are Activated PKN1 stimulates transcription of AR (androgen receptor) regulated genes KLK2 and KLK3 and Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and transcription regulatory region DNA binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MEN1 Gene

  • Essential component of a MLL/SET1 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (H3K4). Functions as a transcriptional regulator. Binds to the TERT promoter and represses telomerase expression. Plays a role in TGFB1-mediated inhibition of cell-proliferation, possibly regulating SMAD3 transcriptional activity. Represses JUND-mediated transcriptional activation on AP1 sites, as well as that mediated by NFKB subunit RELA. Positively regulates HOXC8 and HOXC6 gene expression. May be involved in normal hematopoiesis through the activation of HOXA9 expression (By similarity). May be involved in DNA repair.
