Human Gene ZNF43 (uc031rka.1) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens zinc finger protein 43 (ZNF43), transcript variant 5, mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_001256653): This gene belongs to the C2H2-type zinc finger gene family. The zinc finger proteins are involved in gene regulation and development, and are quite conserved throughout evolution. Like this gene product, a third of the zinc finger proteins containing C2H2 fingers also contain the KRAB domain, which has been found to be involved in protein-protein interactions.

Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr19:21,987,751-22,034,870 Size: 47,120 Total Exon Count: 4 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg19 chr19:21,990,409-22,034,736 Size: 44,328 Coding Exon Count: 4
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.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P17038
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.
