Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CSTF1 Gene
This gene encodes one of three subunits which combine to form cleavage stimulation factor (CSTF). CSTF is involved in the polyadenylation and 3'end cleavage of pre-mRNAs. Similar to mammalian G protein beta subunits, this protein contains transducin-like repeats. Several transcript variants with different 5' UTR, but encoding the same protein, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CSTF1 Gene
CSTF1 (Cleavage Stimulation Factor, 3' Pre-RNA, Subunit 1, 50kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is PRPF4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CSTF1 Gene
One of the multiple factors required for polyadenylation and 3-end cleavage of mammalian pre-mRNAs. May be responsible for the interaction of CSTF with other factors to form a stable complex on the pre-mRNA
