Human Gene GINS4 (uc003xnx.3) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens GINS complex subunit 4 (Sld5 homolog) (GINS4), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_032336): The yeast heterotetrameric GINS complex is made up of Sld5, Psf1 (GINS1; MIM 610608), Psf2 (GINS2; MIM 610609), and Psf3 (GINS3; MIM 610610). The formation of the GINS complex is essential for the initiation of DNA replication in yeast and Xenopus egg extracts (Ueno et al., 2005 [PubMed 16287864]). See GINS1 for additional information about the GINS complex.[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]. Sequence Note: This RefSeq record was created from transcript and genomic sequence data to make the sequence consistent with the reference genome assembly. The genomic coordinates used for the transcript record were based on transcript alignments. ##Evidence-Data-START## Transcript exon combination :: AK313373.1, AK095334.1 [ECO:0000332] RNAseq introns :: single sample supports all introns SAMEA1965299, SAMEA1966682 [ECO:0000348] ##Evidence-Data-END## ##RefSeq-Attributes-START## MANE Ensembl match :: ENST00000276533.4/ ENSP00000276533.3 RefSeq Select criteria :: based on conservation, expression, longest protein ##RefSeq-Attributes-END## Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr8:41,386,725-41,402,565 Size: 15,841 Total Exon Count: 8 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr8:41,387,722-41,399,606 Size: 11,885 Coding Exon Count: 7
ID:SLD5_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=DNA replication complex GINS protein SLD5; AltName: Full=GINS complex subunit 4; FUNCTION: The GINS complex plays an essential role in the initiation of DNA replication, and progression of DNA replication forks. GINS4 is important for GINS complex assembly. GINS complex seems to bind preferentially to single-stranded DNA. SUBUNIT: Component of the GINS complex which is a heterotetramer of GINS1, GINS2, GINS3 and GINS4. Forms a stable subcomplex with GINS1. GINS complex interacts with DNA primase in vitro. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm (By similarity). Nucleus (By similarity). INDUCTION: Significantly up-regulated in agressive melanomas. MASS SPECTROMETRY: Mass=98373; Mass_error=13; Method=Electrospray; Range=1-223; Note=This is the measured mass for the GINS complex; Source=PubMed:17557111; SIMILARITY: Belongs to the GINS4/SLD5 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 Q9BRT9
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.
