Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SMTNL1 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is involved in the contraction of both striated and smooth muscle. During pregnancy, the encoded protein interacts with progesterone receptor to attenuate the expression of contractile and metabolic proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
