GeneID: 266


Common Name: RNF113B Type: Gene
Chromosome: 13 (NC_000013.11) Locus: NM_178861.5 (RNF113B)
HUGO Symbol: RNF113B Full Name: ring finger protein 113B
Exons: 2 Introns: 1

RNF113B is a retrogene, which gained an intron during evolution as the result of mutations and emergence of new splice sites. It encodes a ring finger protein with unknown functions and exhibits tissue-specific splicing. The spliced form is predominantly expressed in testis. A variation in RNF113B was associated with Hb F response to hydroxyurea in sickle cell disease cohorts.

Synonyms: ZNF183L1
