ID:BEX3_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Protein BEX3; AltName: Full=Brain-expressed X-linked protein 3; AltName: Full=Nerve growth factor receptor-associated protein 1; AltName: Full=Ovarian granulosa cell 13.0 kDa protein HGR74; AltName: Full=p75NTR-associated cell death executor; FUNCTION: May be a signaling adapter molecule involved in p75NTR- mediated apoptosis induced by NGF. Plays a role in zinc-triggered neuronal death (By similarity). May play an important role in the pathogenesis of neurogenetic diseases. SUBUNIT: Self-associates. Interacts with 14-3-3 epsilon (YWHAE). Interacts with DIABLO/SMAC (By similarity). Binds to the DEATH domain of p75NTR/NGFR. INTERACTION: Q92574:TSC1; NbExp=5; IntAct=EBI-741753, EBI-1047085; SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. Associates with replicating mitochondria (By similarity). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Found in ovarian granulosa cells, testis, prostate and seminal vesicle tissue. High levels also detected in liver. DOMAIN: The nuclear export signal is required for export from the nucleus and the interactions with itself and p75NTR/NGFR (By similarity). PTM: Ubiquitinated. Degraded by the proteasome (By similarity). MISCELLANEOUS: Binds transition metals (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the BEX family. SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=CAI41523.1; Type=Erroneous initiation;
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 Q00994
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.
