DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Chondrosarcoma-associated gene 2/3 protein; AltName: Full=Cancer/testis antigen 24.2; Short=CT24.2; AltName: Full=Taxol-resistant-associated gene 3 protein; Short=TRAG-3;
FUNCTION: Drug-resistance related protein, its expression is associated with the chemotherapy resistant and neoplastic phenotype. May also be linked to the malignant phenotype.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Weakly expressed in kidney. Expressed in various tumor cell lines including carcinomas, myeloid and lymphoid malignancies, melanomas and prostate cancer. Overexpressed in taxol-resistant breast cancer line MDA 435(TR) and the doxorubicin-resistant multiple myelanoma lines 8226/Dox(40) and 8226/MDR(10)V.

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 Q9Y5P2
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.
