Human Gene RBAK (ENST00000396912.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens RB associated KRAB zinc finger (RBAK), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_021163)
RefSeq Summary (NM_021163): This gene encodes a nuclear protein which interacts with the tumor suppressor retinoblastoma 1. The two interacting proteins are thought to act as a transcriptional repressor for promoters which are activated by the E2F1 transcription factor. This protein contains a Kruppel-associated box (KRAB), which is a transcriptional repressor motif. Read-through transcripts that include exons from the downstream gene LOC389458 are expressed from this locus. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011].

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q9NYW8
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
