Gene: MCPH1 (microcephalin 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MCPH1
Name: microcephalin 1
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in mitotic cell cycle arrest and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nucleoplasm. Implicated in breast cancer; endometrial cancer; microcephaly; primary autosomal recessive microcephaly; and primary autosomal recessive microcephaly 1. Biomarker of oral squamous cell carcinoma and renal carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: BRCT-repeat inhibitor of TERT expression 1; BRIT1; FLJ12847; MCT; microcephalin; microcephaly, primary autosomal recessive 1; truncated microcephalin
