Summaries for ASZ1 Gene

GeneCards Summary for ASZ1 Gene

ASZ1 (Ankyrin Repeat, SAM And Basic Leucine Zipper Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASZ1 include hepatitis e. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Mitotic Prophase. GO annotations related to this gene include signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is RNASEL.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASZ1 Gene

  • Plays a central role during spermatogenesis by repressing transposable elements and preventing their mobilization, which is essential for the germline integrity. Acts via the piRNA metabolic process, which mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and governs the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons. Its association with pi-bodies suggests a participation in the primary piRNAs metabolic process. Required prior to the pachytene stage to facilitate the production of multiple types of piRNAs, including those associated with repeats involved in the regulation of retrotransposons. May act by mediating protein-protein interactions during germ cell maturation (By similarity).
