MEN1 menin 1

Gene ID: 4221, updated on 15-May-2023
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: MEAI; SCG2


This gene encodes menin, a tumor suppressor associated with a syndrome known as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Menin is a scaffold protein that functions in histone modification and epigenetic gene regulation. It is thought to regulate several pathways and processes by altering chromatin structure through the modification of histones. [provided by RefSeq, May 2019]
