|Precautions||TMEM107 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in cilia formation and embryonic patterning. Requires for normal Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling in the neural tube and acts in combination with GLI2 and GLI3 to pattern ventral and intermediate neuronal cell types (By similarity). During ciliogenesis regulates the ciliary transition zone localization of some MKS complex proteins (PubMed:26518474).|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell projection, cilium. Note=Localizes at the transition zone, a region between the basal body and the ciliary axoneme|

Transmembrane protein 107 (TMEM 107) is critical for cilia formation and embryonic patterning (1). It is a 139 amino acid transmembrane protein encoded by a gene that maps to human chromosome 17 which is associated with two key tumor suppressor genes p53 and BRCA1 (1,2). TMEM107 is required for normal Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling in the neural tube and acts in combination with Gli2 and Gli3 to pattern ventral and intermediate neuronal cell types (1,3). TMEM107 is also a strong candidate gene for central areolar choroidal dystrophy (CACD) (1-3).
