This gene is a member of the XAGE subfamily which belongs to the GAGE family. The GAGE genes are expressed in a variety of tumors and in some fetal and reproductive tissues. This gene is strongly expressed in normal testis and in Ewing's sarcoma rhabdomyosarcoma a breast cancer and a germ cell tumor. The protein encoded by this gene shares a sequence similarity with other GAGE/PAGE proteins. Because of the expression pattern and the sequence similarity this protein also belongs to a family of CT (cancer-testis) antigens. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
