GenAge entry for EPS8 (Homo sapiens)

Entry selected based on evidence directly linking the gene product to ageing in a mammalian model organism

Gene name (HAGRID: 267)

HGNC symbol
EPS8 
Aliases
 
Common name
epidermal growth factor receptor pathway substrate 8 

Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence directly linking the gene product to ageing in a mammalian model organism
Description

EPS8 knockout mice appear to be caloric restricted, most probably due to an impaired fat absorption, and show a lean phenotype and increased lifespan [2158]. EPS8 was also shown to be involved in several type of cancer [2161].
