Nuclear receptor coactivator 4

This gene encodes an androgen receptor coactivator. The encoded protein interacts with the androgen receptor in a ligand-dependent manner to enhance its transcriptional activity. Chromosomal translocations between this gene and the ret tyrosine kinase gene, also located on chromosome 10, have been associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. Pseudogenes are present on chromosomes 4, 5, 10, and 14. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009] (from NCBI)

Promoter variants in the MSMB gene associated with prostate cancer regulate MSMB/NCOA4 fusion transcripts.
Dean et al., Frederick, United States. In Hum Genet, 2012
Computational network analysis reveals that the MSMB gene is functionally connected to NCOA4 and the androgen receptor signaling pathway. The data provide an example of how GWAS-associated variants may have multiple genetic and epigenetic effects

Variable expression of nuclear receptor coactivator 4 (NcoA4) during mouse embryonic development.
Brown et al., Toronto, Canada. In J Histochem Cytochem, 2010
Results demonstrate ubiquitous NcoA4 expression throughout development and suggest that this coactivator may play a role in modulating nuclear receptor activity, particularly that of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor, during development.
