Summaries for MTMR8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MTMR8 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the myotubularin-related family and is part of the MTMR6 subgroup. Family members are dual-specificity phosphatases and the encoded protein contains a phosphoinositide-binding domain (PID) and a SET-interacting domain (SID). Defects in other family members have been found in myotubular myopathic diseases. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]
