Summaries for HELZ Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HELZ Gene

  • HELZ is a member of the superfamily I class of RNA helicases. RNA helicases alter the conformation of RNA by unwinding double-stranded regions, thereby altering the biologic activity of the RNA molecule and regulating access to other proteins (Wagner et al., 1999 [PubMed 10471385]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for HELZ Gene

HELZ (Helicase With Zinc Finger) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UPF1.
