Gene: FITM1 (fat storage inducing transmembrane protein 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FITM1
Name: fat storage inducing transmembrane protein 1
Description: Predicted to be involved in several processes, including lipid droplet organization; lipid storage; and positive regulation of sequestering of triglyceride. Predicted to localize to the integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: fat storage-inducing transmembrane protein 1; fat-inducing protein 1; fat-inducing transcript 1; FIT1; MGC46490; similar to cg10671-like
