GENE SUMMARY
Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDK) exists as a hexamer composed of 'A' (encoded by NME1) and 'B' (encoded by this gene) isoforms. Multiple altertively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. Read-through transcription from the neighboring upstream gene (NME1) generates turally-occurring transcripts (NME1-NME2) that encode a fusion protein comprised of sequence sharing identity with each individual gene product.

OBSERVATIONS

Complication Evidence PMID
Retinopathy1. Our data identify NDPKB as a protective factor in the retina, which controls Ang2 expression and the hexosamine pathway.25900369
