Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Protein canopy homolog 2; AltName: Full=MIR-interacting saposin-like protein; AltName: Full=Putative secreted protein Zsig9; AltName: Full=Transmembrane protein 4; Flags: Precursor;
FUNCTION: Positive regulator of neurite outgrowth by stabilizing myosin regulatory light chain (MRLC). It prevents MIR-mediated MRLC ubiquitination and its subsequent proteasomal degradation. SUBUNIT: Interacts with MYLIP/MIR. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Endoplasmic reticulum (Potential). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in different tissues. Highest levels are detected in adult placenta, liver and pancreas. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the canopy family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 saposin B-type domain.

mRNA Secondary Structure of 3' and 5' UTRs
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 Q9Y2B0
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.
