Gene : FTO Homo sapiens

Name  ? FTO alpha-ketoglutarate dependent dioxygenase Cytological Location  16q12.2
Brief Description  FTO alpha-ketoglutarate dependent dioxygenase
description  This gene is a nuclear protein of the AlkB related non-haem iron and 2-oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenase superfamily but the exact physiological function of this gene is not known. Other non-heme iron enzymes function to reverse alkylated DNA and RNA damage by oxidative demethylation. Studies in mice and humans indicate a role in nervous and cardiovascular systems and a strong association with body mass index, obesity risk, and type 2 diabetes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]
