Human Gene PCYT1B (uc004dbi.3) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens phosphate cytidylyltransferase 1, choline, beta (PCYT1B), transcript variant 1, mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_004845): The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the cytidylyltransferase family. It is involved in the regulation of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chrX:24,576,204-24,665,455 Size: 89,252 Total Exon Count: 8 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg19 chrX:24,580,410-24,665,222 Size: 84,813 Coding Exon Count: 8
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 Q9Y5K3
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.
