Gene: MECOM (MDS1 and EVI1 complex locus) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MECOM
Name: MDS1 and EVI1 complex locus
CRRD ID: 1322216
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of JNK cascade; negative regulation of programmed cell death; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to nuclear speck. Colocalizes with histone deacetylase complex. Implicated in myeloid neoplasm.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
