Summaries for TMEM87B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TMEM87B Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that may interact with human papillomavirus type 18 E6 oncogene. The protein is also likely to be involved in endosome-to-trans-Golgi network retrograde transport. The gene is expressed in adult and fetal tissues, including brain and heart. This gene is a component of the 2q13 deletion syndrome. Mutations in this gene may be associated with congenital heart defects. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]
