Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CCT4 Gene
The chaperonin containing TCP1 (MIM 186980) complex (CCT), also called the TCP1 ring complex, consists of 2 back-to-back rings, each containing 8 unique but homologous subunits, such as CCT4. CCT assists the folding of newly translated polypeptide substrates through multiple rounds of ATP-driven release and rebinding of partially folded intermediate forms. Substrates of CCT include the cytoskeletal proteins actin (see MIM 102560) and tubulin (see MIM 191130), as well as alpha-transducin (MIM 139330) (Won et al., 1998 [PubMed 9819444]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CCT4 Gene
CCT4 (Chaperonin Containing TCP1 Subunit 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCT4 include Mental Retardation, X-Linked, Snyder-Robinson Type. Among its related pathways are Cooperation of Prefoldin and TriC/CCT in actin and tubulin folding and Chaperonin-mediated protein folding. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and unfolded protein binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCT4 Gene
Molecular chaperone; assists the folding of proteins upon ATP hydrolysis. As part of the BBS/CCT complex may play a role in the assembly of BBSome, a complex involved in ciliogenesis regulating transports vesicles to the cilia. Known to play a role, in vitro, in the folding of actin and tubulin.
