Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NANOGP8 Gene
This gene represents a transcribed retrogene of the Nanog homeobox gene. The putative encoded protein may participate in reprogramming of cancer cells. In vitro studies using a recombinant protein have shown that the protein localizes to the nucleus and can promote cell proliferation, similar to the Nanog protein. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2017]
