Wermer's syndrome: The MEN1 gene is a cloned tumor suppressor gene for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia, a predisposition for endocrine tumors and carcinoid tumors. The gene encodes the tumor suppressor protein MEN1, which regulates transcription through direct interaction with, and inhibition of, transcription factor JunD. Menin also interacts with SMAD3 and appears to be required for SMAD3/4-DNA binding at transcriptional regulatory sites. The human gene is located at 11q13.
