Human Gene PRR14 (uc002dyy.3) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens proline rich 14 (PRR14), mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_024031): The protein encoded by this gene tethers heterochromatin to the nuclear laminar scaffold by binding heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1) and the nuclear lamina. The tether is broken during mitosis and reforms quickly after mitosis, with the encoded protein first binding HP1 and then attaching to the nuclear lamina. This protein also has been shown to promote MyoD activity and skeletal myogenesis. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr16:30,662,241-30,667,734 Size: 5,494 Total Exon Count: 12 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr16:30,662,967-30,667,632 Size: 4,666 Coding Exon Count: 11
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 Q9BWN1
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.
