Summaries for WDR49 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR49 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family with nine WD repeats. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2017]
