Genes, Suppressor MeSH Descriptor Data 2023

MeSH Heading
Genes, Suppressor
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
GENES, TUMOR SUPPRESSOR is also available; do not use for genes involved in suppression of a physiologic process: index the physiologic process /‌genet + specific gene if pertinent (genes involved in memory suppression = MEMORY /‌genet + specific gene term if pertinent but not GENES, SUPPRESSOR)
Scope Note
Genes that have a suppressor allele or suppressor mutation (SUPPRESSION, GENETIC) which cancels the effect of a previous mutation, enabling the wild-type phenotype to be maintained or partially restored. For example, amber suppressors cancel the effect of an AMBER NONSENSE MUTATION.
