Summaries for CCT6A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCT6A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a molecular chaperone that is a member of the chaperonin containing TCP1 complex (CCT), also known as the TCP1 ring complex (TRiC). This complex consists of two identical stacked rings, each containing eight different proteins. Unfolded polypeptides enter the central cavity of the complex and are folded in an ATP-dependent manner. The complex folds various proteins, including actin and tubulin. Alternate transcriptional splice variants of this gene, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. In addition, several pseudogenes of this gene have been located.

GeneCards Summary for CCT6A Gene

CCT6A (Chaperonin Containing TCP1, Subunit 6A (Zeta 1)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCT6A include morphine dependence. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Protein folding. GO annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCT6B.
