Gene: FLCN (folliculin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FLCN
Name: folliculin
RGD ID: 1604509
Description: Exhibits GTPase activator activity. Involved in several processes, including TOR signaling; regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Localizes to several cellular components, including cilium; lysosomal membrane; and microtubule cytoskeleton. Colocalizes with cell-cell contact zone and midbody. Implicated in Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome; colorectal cancer; primary spontaneous pneumothorax; and renal cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
