Description…

FAM83H is a member of the FAM83 family and plays an important role in the structural development and calcification of tooth enamel. Defects in this gene are a cause of amelogenesis imperfecta type 3 (AI3). Lack of a recognizable signal peptide indicates that the protein functions within the cell. It is expressed in the tooth follicle.

Overview

FAM83H (FLJ46072) exhibited higher expression in ovarian cancer relative to normal tissues. The expression data is based on whole tissue analysis.

Performance Comment

FAM83H (FLJ46072) was one of 13 genes out of 50 selected for further validation in PMID:21617380. Average expression of FAM83H was significantly higher in epithelial ovarian cancer tumors than any other normal tissue tested.
