Gene: MAGED4B (MAGE family member D4B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAGED4B
Name: MAGE family member D4B
Description: This gene is a member of the MAGED gene family. It is expressed only in brain and ovary, and some transcript variants of this gene are specifically expressed in glioma cells. This gene is clustered with other MAGED genes on chromosome Xp11. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2011]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: KIAA1859; MAGE-D4 antigen; MAGE-E1 antigen; melanoma antigen family D, 4B; melanoma antigen family D4B; melanoma-associated antigen D4; MGC3210; MGC88639
Allele / Splice: See ClinVar data
Latest Assembly: GRCh38 - Human Genome Assembly GRCh38
NCBI Annotation Information: Note: There are two highly similar MAGED4 loci on the X chromosome. In June, 2007, the name of this locus was changed from MAGED4 to MAGED4B to conform to the annotation of the underlying clone. [20 Jun 2007]
