Gene: WFS1 (wolframin ER transmembrane glycoprotein) Homo sapiens
Symbol: WFS1
Name: wolframin ER transmembrane glycoprotein
Description: Exhibits ATPase binding activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of ATF6-mediated unfolded protein response; negative regulation of apoptotic process; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Implicated in Wolfram syndrome (multiple); auditory system disease (multiple); cataract 41; diabetes mellitus (multiple); and optic atrophy (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
