What is the normal function of the SRCAP gene?
The SRCAP gene provides instructions for making a protein called Snf2-related CREBBP activator protein, or SRCAP. SRCAP is one of several proteins that help activate a gene called CREBBP. The protein produced from the CREBBP gene, called CREB binding protein, plays a key role in regulating cell growth and division and is important for normal development.
How are changes in the SRCAP gene related to health conditions?
Where is the SRCAP gene located?
