Human Gene IST1 (uc031qwz.1) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens increased sodium tolerance 1 homolog (yeast) (IST1), transcript variant 5, mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_001270978): This gene encodes a protein with MIT-interacting motifs that interacts with components of endosomal sorting complexes required for transport (ESCRT). ESCRT functions in vesicle budding, such as that which occurs during membrane abscission in cytokinesis. There is a pseudogene for this gene on chromosome 19. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr16:71,929,396-71,964,540 Size: 35,145 Total Exon Count: 7 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr16:71,955,249-71,961,716 Size: 6,468 Coding Exon Count: 5
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
Protein Domain and Structure Information
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on J3QLU7
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.
