Mouse Gene Alx3 (ENSMUST00000014747.2) from GENCODE VM23 Comprehensive Transcript Set (only Basic displayed by default)
Description: Mus musculus aristaless-like homeobox 3 (Alx3), mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_007441) RefSeq Summary (NM_007441): This gene belongs to Group 1 of aristaless-like genes, which are characterized by the presence of an aristaless domain and a conserved paired-like homeodomain. The encoded protein acts as a transcriptional regulator. The protein plays a role in the development of craniofacial and appendicular skeleton and may have a role in pancreatic function.

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 Q3UQX2
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.
