Gene Type: protein_coding_gene
Location: Chr: 19 Mapping Details/Browsers
Description: Exhibits telomerase activity. Involved in several processes, including erythrocyte maturation; intestinal epithelial structure maintenance; and telomere maintenance via telomerase. Localizes to the nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autosomal dominant dyskeratosis congenita 2; familial melanoma; hepatocellular carcinoma; idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; and leukemia (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including eye; heart; integument; liver; and pleuroperitoneal region. Orthologous to human TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase).
