Official Full Name
nucleus accumbens associated 1, BEN and BTB (POZ) domain containing
This gene encodes a member of the BTB/POZ protein family. BTB/POZ proteins are involved in several cellular processes;including proliferation, apoptosis and transcription regulation. The encoded protein is a transcriptional repressor;that plays a role in stem cell self-renewal and pluripotency maintenance. The encoded protein also suppresses;transcription of the candidate tumor suppressor Gadd45GIP1, and expression of this gene may play a role in the;progression of multiple types of cancer. A pseudogene of this gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 9.
