About GAGE8

Cytogenetic location: Xp11.4-p11.2 Genomic coordinates (GRCh38): X:37,800,001-58,100,000


This gene belongs to a family of genes that are expressed in a variety of tumors but not in normal tissues, except for the testis. The sequences of the family members are highly related but differ by scattered nucleotide substitutions. The antigenic peptide YRPRPRRY, which is also encoded by several other family members, is recognized by autologous cytolytic T lymphocytes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
