Description genomic sequence 167 kb; 14 exons
Transcription 8 kb mRNA; various splicings in the mouse

3. Protein

Description 412 aa
Expression in quiescent/terminally differenciated cells, like other GAS (herien the name Growth Arrest-Specific); selective expression in growth-arrested fibroblasts; GAS7 is predominantly expressed in the brain (in particular, in the mouse, in Purkinje cells of the cerebellum, at lower level in other tissues such as the heart and the testes); gas7 expression is associated with neurite formation (and overproduction of gas7 in neuroblastoma cells promotes neurite-like outgrowth) which suggests that GAS7 may have a role in promoting, and possibly maintaining, maturation and morphological differentiation of cerebellar neurons

4. Implicated in

Entity treatment-related acute non lymphocytic leukemia with t(11;17)(q23;p13)
Disease only one case: a 13-year-old boy, with a M4 AML and a karyotype with an apparent del(11)(q23) (finally proved to be in reality a cryptic t(11;17)(q23;p13)); four months later the patient died; other cases of t(11;17)(q23;p13) have been described but the involvement of GAS7 has not been proved
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' MLL-3' GAS7; breakpoint in MLL intron 8, in MLL bcr; GAS7 breakpoint upstream of exon 1; fusion of mLL exon 7 or exon 8 to GAS7 exon 2
