ETS proto-oncogene 1, transcription factor
The ETS1 gene codes for a protein in the highly conserved ETS family. This protein is a transcription factor that plays a role in cell proliferation, differentiation, angiogenesis, and lymphoid cell development. Proteins in the ETS family have also been found to play an important role in the function of the mammalian immune system (Li et al., 2000).
Changes in this gene were identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if these changes are causing symptoms in this participant.
