GeneID: 318


Common Name: RPS24 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 10 (NC_000010.11) Locus: NG_012633.1 (RPS24)
HUGO Symbol: RPS24 Full Name: ribosomal protein S24
Exons: 5 Introns: 4

The RPS24 gene encodes a protein involved in ribosomal RNA biogenesis and is critical for maturation of the 40S ribosomal subunit. The protein belongs to the S24E family of ribosomal proteins. It is located in the cytoplasm. Mutations in this gene have been found in patients with Diamond-Blackfan anaemia, a rare syndrome of congenital bone marrow failure characterized by erythroblastopenia and various malformations. Genetic variance in RPS24 gene associated with episodes of pain in patients with sickle cell disease.

Synonyms: S24 , DBA3 , eS24
