Gene: FNTA (farnesyltransferase, CAAX box, alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FNTA
Name: farnesyltransferase, CAAX box, alpha
Description: Exhibits protein prenyltransferase activity and tubulin binding activity. Predicted to contribute to CAAX-protein geranylgeranyltransferase activity. Involved in positive regulation of deacetylase activity; positive regulation of tubulin deacetylation; and protein prenylation. Localizes to the CAAX-protein geranylgeranyltransferase complex; microtubule associated complex; and protein farnesyltransferase complex.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: farnesyl-protein transferase alpha-subunit; FPTA; FTase-alpha; GGTase-I-alpha; MGC99680; PGGT1A; protein farnesyltransferase/geranylgeranyltransferase type-1 subunit alpha; protein prenyltransferase alpha subunit repeat containing 2; PTAR2; ras proteins prenyltransferase subunit alpha; type I protein geranyl-geranyltransferase alpha subunit
