ID:GSC_MOUSE DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Homeobox protein goosecoid; FUNCTION: Regulates chordin (CHRD). May play a role in spatial programing within discrete embryonic fields or lineage compartments during organogenesis (By similarity). In concert with NKX3-2, plays a role in defining the structural components of the middle ear; required for the development of the entire tympanic ring. Goosecoid-expressing regions of the gastrulating mouse egg cylinder have organizer-like activity when transplanted into Xenopus embryos. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: In early gastrulation, expressed in the dorsal lip. In later stages of development found in head, limbs and body wall. INDUCTION: By activin. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the paired homeobox family. Bicoid subfamily. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
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 Q02591
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.
