Summaries for MTMR7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MTMR7 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myotubularin family of tyrosine/dual-specificity phosphatases. The encoded protein is characterized by four distinct domains that are conserved among all members of the myotubularin family: the glucosyltransferase, Rab-like GTPase activator and myotubularins domain, the Rac-induced recruitment domain, the protein tyrosine phosphatases and dual-specificity phosphatases domain and the suppressor of variegation 3-9, enhancer-of-zeste, and trithorax interaction domain. This protein dephosphorylates the target substrates phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate and inositol 1,3-bisphosphate. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 5. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
