Human Gene NACC1 (uc002mwm.4) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens nucleus accumbens associated 1, BEN and BTB (POZ) domain containing (NACC1), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_052876): This gene encodes a member of the BTB/POZ protein family. BTB/POZ proteins are involved in several cellular processes including proliferation, apoptosis and transcription regulation. The encoded protein is a transcriptional repressor that plays a role in stem cell self-renewal and pluripotency maintenance. The encoded protein also suppresses transcription of the candidate tumor suppressor Gadd45GIP1, and expression of this gene may play a role in the progression of multiple types of cancer. A pseudogene of this gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 9. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012].

ID:NACC1_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Nucleus accumbens-associated protein 1; Short=NAC-1; AltName: Full=BTB/POZ domain-containing protein 14B; FUNCTION: Functions as a transcriptional repressor. Seems to function as a transcriptional corepressor in neuronal cells through recruitment of HDAC3 and HDAC4. Contributes to tumor progression, and tumor cell proliferation and survival. This may be mediated at least in part through repressing transcriptional activity of GADD45GIP1. Required for recruiting the proteasome from the nucleus to the cytoplasm and dendritic spines. SUBUNIT: Homooligomer; mediated by the BTB domain. Interacts with HDAC3 and HDAC4. Interacts (via BTB domain) with CUL3, PSMD7 AND RCOR1. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Distribution in the cytoplasm is dependent on phosphorylation (By similarity). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Overexpressed in several types of carcinomas including ovarian serous carcinomas. Expression levels positively correlate with tumor recurrence in ovarian serous carcinomas, and intense immunoreactivity in primary ovarian tumors predicts early recurrence. Up-regulated in ovarian carcinomas after chemotherapy, suggesting a role in development of chemotherapy resistance in ovarian cancer. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 BEN domain. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 BTB (POZ) domain.
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 Q96RE7
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.
