Description…

The members of the MAGEA protein family display 50-80% sequence identity among their members. MAGEA proteins are thought to play a role in tumor transformation or aspects of tumor progression. The promoters and first exons of the MAGEA genes show considerable variability, suggesting that the existence of this gene family enables the same function to be expressed under different transcriptional controls. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
