Summaries for DNAH17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DNAH17 Gene

  • Dyneins are microtubule-associated motor protein complexes composed of several heavy, light, and intermediate chains. DNAH17 is a heavy chain associated with axonemal dynein (Milisav and Affara, 1998 [PubMed 9545504]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DNAH17 Gene

DNAH17 (Dynein, Axonemal, Heavy Chain 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DNAH17 include brachial plexus neuropathy. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase activity and microtubule motor activity. An important paralog of this gene is DNAH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DNAH17 Gene

  • Force generating protein of respiratory cilia. Produces force towards the minus ends of microtubules. Dynein has ATPase activity; the force-producing power stroke is thought to occur on release of ADP. Involved in sperm motility; implicated in sperm flagellar assembly (By similarity).

Graphical View of Domain Structure for InterPro Entry



  • Q9UFH2
  • Dynein heavy chains probably consist of an N-terminal stem (which binds cargo and interacts with other dynein components), and the head or motor domain. The motor contains six tandemly-linked AAA domains in the head, which form a ring. A stalk-like structure (formed by two of the coiled coil domains) protrudes between AAA 4 and AAA 5 and terminates in a microtubule-binding site. A seventh domain may also contribute to this ring; it is not clear whether the N-terminus or the C-terminus forms this extra domain. There are four well-conserved and two non-conserved ATPase sites, one per AAA domain. Probably only one of these (within AAA 1) actually hydrolyzes ATP, the others may serve a regulatory function (By similarity).
  • Belongs to the dynein heavy chain family.
  • Contains 3 TPR repeats.
