NME5 encodes the human gene, NME/NM23 family member 5. It may also be known as: Nucleoside diphosphate kinase homolog 5; NDK-H 5; NDP kinase homolog 5; Inhibitor of p53-induced apoptosis-beta; IPIA-beta; Testis-specific nm23 homolog; nm23-H5; radial spoke 23 homolog (Chlamydomonas); NM23H5; RSPH23. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 212 and a mass of 24.2 kDa. NME5 is a member of the NDK family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
