Summary of DFNA5

dfna5 function is unknown. However, the gene is expressed during development of the fetal cochlea. [R]

The Function of DFNA5

Plays a role in the TP53-regulated cellular response to DNA damage probably by cooperating with TP53 (PubMed:16897187, PubMed:18223688, PubMed:21522185). The N-terminal moiety promotes pyroptosis and exhibits bactericidal activity (PubMed:27281216). The physiological relevance of these observations is unknown.
