Regulator of telomere elongation helicase 1
This gene is a member of the stathmin family, and is related to RAD3/ERCC2, a plasma membrane Ras-related GTPase. The amplification or overexpression of this gene may contribute to cell growth and tumor progression. It is located in a gene-rich cluster on chromosome 20, with other potentially tumor-related genes, such as TNFRSF6B. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene, however, the full-length nature of not all variants is known.
