Gene: TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TERT
Name: telomerase reverse transcriptase
Description: Exhibits several functions, including chaperone binding activity; nucleic acid binding activity; and nucleotidyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including nucleic acid metabolic process; positive regulation of gene expression; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including the TERT-RMRP complex; mitochondrial nucleoid; and nucleus. Colocalizes with the PML body. Implicated in several diseases, including autosomal dominant dyskeratosis congenita 2; familial melanoma; hepatocellular carcinoma; idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; and leukemia (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including beta thalassemia; cervix uteri carcinoma in situ; hematologic cancer (multiple); kidney cancer (multiple); and liver disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
