    This gene encodes a member of a family of proteins with two K homology (KH) RNA-binding domains and a C-terminal RING-finger domain. The protein interacts with mRNA via the KH domains, and the protein shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm. Polymorphisms in this gene may contribute to hypertension.

    NCBI Reference Sequences (RefSeq)

    RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

    These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

    These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
