ID:NACA_MOUSE DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Nascent polypeptide-associated complex subunit alpha; AltName: Full=Alpha-NAC; AltName: Full=Alpha-NAC/1.9.2; FUNCTION: Prevents inappropriate targeting of non-secretory polypeptides to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Binds to nascent polypeptide chains as they emerge from the ribosome and blocks their interaction with the signal recognition particle (SRP), which normally targets nascent secretory peptides to the ER. Also reduces the inherent affinity of ribosomes for protein translocation sites in the ER membrane (M sites) (By similarity). Isoform 1 and isoform 2 appear to bind DNA and play roles in transcription. Isoform 1 may function as a specific coactivator for JUN, acting to stabilize the interaction of JUN homodimers with promoter elements. SUBUNIT: Part of the nascent polypeptide-associated complex (NAC), consisting of NACA and BTF3. NAC associates with ribosomes through the BTF3 subunit. Both subunits can contact nascent polypeptide chains (By similarity). Interacts with TBP and JUN. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Isoform 1 appears to be ubiquitously expressed. DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Expressed concomitant with the onset of mineralization in ossification centers of developing bone. PTM: Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR (By similarity). Phosphorylation of Ser-43 by ILK during cell adhesion may promote nuclear localization. Phosphorylation of Thr-159 by GSK3B may promote proteasome mediated degradation. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NAC-alpha family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 NAC-A/B (NAC-alpha/beta) domain. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 UBA 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 Q60817
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.
