Summaries for CCT8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CCT8 Gene

  • This gene encodes the theta subunit of the CCT chaperonin, which is abundant in the eukaryotic cytosol and may be involved in the transport and assembly of newly synthesized proteins. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants of this gene. A pseudogene related to this gene is located on chromosome 1. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]

GeneCards Summary for CCT8 Gene

CCT8 (Chaperonin Containing TCP1, Subunit 8 (Theta)) is a Protein Coding gene. 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 and ATPase activity, coupled. An important paralog of this gene is CCT8L2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CCT8 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.
