FHL1 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

FHL1 cDNA / Gene Overview

FHL1 cDNA / gene is a gene with protein product which located on Xq26.3. The FHL1 gene is conserved in Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, and frog. 232 organisms have orthologs with human gene FHL1.

FHL1 cDNA / Gene Function

This gene encodes a member of the four-and-a-half-LIM-only protein family. Family members contain two highly conserved, tandemly arranged, zinc finger domains with four highly conserved cysteines binding a zinc atom in each zinc finger. Expression of these family members occurs in a cell- and tissue-specific mode and these proteins are involved in many cellular processes. Mutations in this gene have been found in patients with Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy. Multiple alternately spliced transcript variants which encode different protein isoforms have been described.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]
