Disease relevance of PRB4


High impact information on PRB4

  • The Po protein and a glycoprotein (II-1) are encoded in the PRB4 gene, and both proteins are absent in the presence of a mutation in the PRB4M PO- allele that contains a single nt change (G--C) at the +1 invariant position of the intron 3 5'donor splice site [1].
