    basic FUNCTION
  • may be involved in the regulation of extraosseous calcification, a process of considerable importance in a wide range of diseases as common as atherosclerosis and autoimmune disorders
  • playing a role regulating cell proliferation and suppressing the neoplastic phenotype
  • SAMD9/SAMD9L are myeloid tumor suppressors (Asou 2009
  • SAMD9 and SAMD9L have also recently been shown to play key roles in the innate immune responses to stimuli such as viral infection
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell life, proliferation/growth
