ID:NAF1_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=H/ACA ribonucleoprotein complex non-core subunit NAF1; Short=hNAF1; FUNCTION: RNA-binding protein required for the maturation of box H/ACA snoRNPs complex and ribosome biogenesis. During assembly of the H/ACA snoRNPs complex, it associates with the complex and disappears during maturation of the complex and is replaced by NOLA1/GAR1 to yield mature H/ACA snoRNPs complex. Probably competes with NOLA1/GAR1 for binding with DKC1/NOLA4. SUBUNIT: During assembly of the complex, component of the small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein particles containing H/ACA-type snoRNAs (H/ACA snoRNPs) which contains NOLA2/NHP2, NOLA3/NOP10, NAF1 and DKC1/NOLA4. Interacts directly with DKC1/NOLA4. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. Absent from the nucleolus (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NAF1 family.

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 Q96HR8
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.
