Summaries for CDC5L Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDC5L Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene shares a significant similarity with Schizosaccharomyces pombe cdc5 gene product, which is a cell cycle regulator important for G2/M transition. This protein has been demonstrated to act as a positive regulator of cell cycle G2/M progression. It was also found to be an essential component of a non-snRNA spliceosome, which contains at least five additional protein factors and is required for the second catalytic step of pre-mRNA splicing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CDC5L Gene

CDC5L (Cell Division Cycle 5-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDC5L include cystoisosporiasis and poikiloderma with neutropenia. Among its related pathways are Spliceosome. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and WD40-repeat domain binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDC5L Gene

  • DNA-binding protein involved in cell cycle control. May act as a transcription activator. Component of the PRP19-CDC5L complex that forms an integral part of the spliceosome and is required for activating pre-mRNA splicing. The PRP19-CDC5L complex may also play a role in the response to DNA damage (DDR).

    802 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    92251 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer. Interacts with DAPK3 (By similarity). Belongs to the spliceosome complex. Part of a spliceosomal core complex consisting of CDC5L, PLRG1, SPF27, CCAP1, CCAP3 and CCAP6. Interacts with PLRG1, Lodestar/TTF2, and NIPP1/PPP1R8. Identified in the spliceosome C complex. Component of the PRP19-CDC5L splicing complex composed of a core complex comprising a homotetramer of PRPF19, CDC5L, PLRG1 and BCAS2, and at least three less stably associated proteins CTNNBL1, CWC15 and HSPA8. Interacts (via its C-terminus) directly in the complex with PRPF19 and BCAS2. Interacts (via its C-terminus) directly with PRGL1 (via its WD40 repeat domain); the interaction is required for mRNA splicing but not for spliceosome assembly. Also interacts with CTNNBL1. Interacts with PRPF19 (via N-terminus) (By similarity).
