Human Gene ZNF639 (uc003fjr.1) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens zinc finger protein 639 (ZNF639), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_016331): This gene encodes a member of the Kruppel-like zinc finger family of proteins. Amplification and overexpression of this gene have been observed in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. The encoded protein has been shown to bind DNA in a sequence-specific manner and may regulate HIV-1 gene expression. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr3:179,041,551-179,053,320 Size: 11,770 Total Exon Count: 7 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr3:179,046,082-179,052,210 Size: 6,129 Coding Exon Count: 4
ID:ZN639_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Zinc finger protein 639; AltName: Full=Zinc finger protein ANC_2H01; AltName: Full=Zinc finger protein ZASC1; FUNCTION: Binds DNA and may function as a transcriptional repressor. SUBUNIT: Interacts with CTNNA2. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. SIMILARITY: Contains 8 C2H2-type zinc fingers.

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 Q9UID6
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.
