ID:PRRX1_MOUSE DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Paired mesoderm homeobox protein 1; AltName: Full=Homeobox protein K-2; AltName: Full=Homeobox protein mHox; AltName: Full=Paired-related homeobox protein 1; Short=PRX-1; FUNCTION: Acts as a transcriptional regulator of muscle creatine kinase (MCK) and so has a role in the establishment of diverse mesodermal muscle types. The protein binds to an A/T-rich element in the muscle creatine enhancer. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed exclusively in mesodermally derived cell types. During embryogenesis, highest levels of expression are found in the mesenchyme and precartilage elements of the face and hind limbs. In the adult, expression is restricted to skeletal muscle, heart and uterus. DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Expressed during cardiogenesis. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the paired homeobox family. 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 P63013
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.
