Human Gene THOC6 (uc002ctb.2) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens THO complex 6 homolog (Drosophila) (THOC6), transcript variant 1, mRNA. RefSeq Summary (NM_024339): This gene encodes a subunit of the multi-protein THO complex, which is involved in coordination between transcription and mRNA processing. The THO complex is a component of the TREX (transcription/export) complex, which is involved in transcription and export of mRNAs. A missense mutation in this gene is associated with a neurodevelopmental disorder called Beaulieu-Boycott-Innes syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]. Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg19 chr16:3,074,032-3,077,756 Size: 3,725 Total Exon Count: 13 Strand: + Coding Region Position: hg19 chr16:3,074,328-3,077,658 Size: 3,331 Coding Exon Count: 13
ID:THOC6_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=THO complex subunit 6 homolog; AltName: Full=Functional spliceosome-associated protein 35; Short=fSAP35; AltName: Full=WD repeat-containing protein 58; FUNCTION: Component of the THO subcomplex of the TREX complex. The TREX complex specifically associates with spliced mRNA and not with unspliced pre-mRNA. It is recruited to spliced mRNAs by a transcription-independent mechanism. Binds to mRNA upstream of the exon-junction complex (EJC) and is recruited in a splicing- and cap-dependent manner to a region near the 5' end of the mRNA where it functions in mRNA export. The recruitment occurs via an interaction between ALYREF/THOC4 and the cap-binding protein NCBP1. DDX39B functions as a bridge between ALYREF/THOC4 and the THO complex. The TREX complex is essential for the export of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) intronless mRNAs and infectious virus production. The recruitment of the TREX complex to the intronless viral mRNA occurs via an interaction between KSHV ORF57 protein and ALYREF/THOC4. SUBUNIT: Component of the THO complex, which is composed of THOC1, THOC2, THOC5, THOC6 and THOC7. Together with THOC3, ALYREF/THOC4 and DDX39B, THO forms the transcription/export (TREX) complex. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the WD repeat THOC6 family. SIMILARITY: Contains 7 WD repeats. SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=BAG36782.1; 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 Q86W42
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.
