ACT/FHL5 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

ACT/FHL5 cDNA / Gene Overview

FHL5 cDNA / gene is a gene with protein product which located on 6q16.1. The FHL5 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, and frog. 189 organisms have orthologs with human gene FHL5.

ACT/FHL5 cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is coordinately expressed with activator of cAMP-responsive element modulator (CREM). It is associated with CREM and confers a powerful transcriptional activation function. CREM acts as a transcription factor essential for the differentiation of spermatids into mature spermatozoa. There are multiple polyadenylation sites found in this gene. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with susceptibility for migraine headaches. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2016]
