Human Gene GAS8 (uc002fqh.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens growth arrest-specific 8 (GAS8), transcript variant 2, non-coding RNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_001481): This gene includes 11 exons spanning 25 kb and maps to a region of chromosome 16 that is sometimes deleted in breast and prostrate cancer. The second intron contains an apparently intronless gene, C16orf3, that is transcribed in the opposite orientation. This gene is a putative tumor suppressor gene. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2013].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Growth arrest-specific protein 8; Short=GAS-8; AltName: Full=Growth arrest-specific protein 11; Short=GAS-11;
FUNCTION: Cytoskeletal linker which binds microtubules and probably functions in axonemal and non-axonemal dynein regulation. May play a role in the spermatozoa motility (By similarity).
INTERACTION: O76071:CIAO1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-1052570, EBI-725145;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton (By similarity). Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, flagellum basal body (By similarity). Golgi apparatus (By similarity). Note=Associates with microtubules (By similarity). Localized to the cytoplasm of round spermatids, the tails of elongating spermatids, and mature spermatid tail bundles protruding into the lumen, and in the flagellum of epididymal spermatozoa (By similarity).
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in the heart, skeletal muscle, pancreas and liver. Weakly or not expressed in brain, placenta, lung and kidney.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the GAS8 family.

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.
