GeneID: 278


Common Name: MYBBP1A Type: Gene
Chromosome: 17 (NC_000017.11) Locus: NG_047119.1 (MYBBP1A)
HUGO Symbol: MYBBP1A Full Name: MYB binding protein 1a
Exons: 27 Introns: 26

The MYBBP1A gene encodes a nucleolar transcriptional regulator that was first identified by its ability to bind specifically to the MYB proto-oncogene protein. MYB is predominantly expressed in immature haemopoietic cells where it plays an important role in haemopoietic cell proliferation and differentiation, and has been recognized as an important QTL in the modulation of Hb F gene expression. MYBBP1A is thought to play a role in many cellular processes including response to nucleolar stress, tumor suppression and synthesis of ribosomal DNA. A variation in MYBBP1A associated with Hb F response to hydroxyurea in sickle cell disease cohorts.
