ID:TSAP1_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=tRNA selenocysteine 1-associated protein 1; AltName: Full=SECp43; AltName: Full=tRNA selenocysteine-associated protein 1; FUNCTION: Involved in the early steps of selenocysteine biosynthesis and tRNA(Sec) charging to the later steps resulting in the cotranslational incorporation of selenocysteine into selenoproteins. Stabilizes the SECISBP2, EEFSEC and tRNA(Sec) complex. May be involved in the methylation of tRNA(Sec). Enhances efficiency of selenoproteins synthesis (By similarity). SUBUNIT: Component of the tRNA(Sec) complex composed at least of EEFSEC, SECISBP2, SEPHS1, SEPSECS, TRNAU1AP and tRNA(Sec). Found in a complex with tRNA(Sec). Interacts with SEPSECS. Associates with mRNP and/or polysomes (By similarity). Found in a complex with EEFSEC, SECISBP2, TRNAU1AP and tRNA(Sec). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity). Cytoplasm (By similarity). Note=Abundant in the nucleus (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the RRM TRSPAP family. SIMILARITY: Contains 2 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domains.
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 Q9NX07
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.
