9.B.422.  The Transmembrane Protein-26 (TMEM26) Family

Members of this family play roles in beige adipocyte formation in overweight animals (Rachid et al. 2018), and may target obesity by influencing fat oxidatioin and thermogenesis (Liu et al. 2019). Its gene expressioin is influenced by emodin (Cheng et al. 2021). Members of this family include regions that show some sequence similarity with members of TC family 1.A.82.
