This gene is similar to a mouse gene that encodes a putative RNA helicase and shows testis-specific expression. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2009]
GeneCards Summary for MOV10L1 Gene
MOV10L1 (Mov10 RISC Complex RNA Helicase Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Mitotic Prophase and PIWI-interacting RNA (piRNA) biogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and ATP-dependent RNA helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MOV10.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MOV10L1 Gene
ATP-dependent RNA helicase required during spermatogenesis to repress transposable elements and prevent their mobilization, which is essential for germline integrity. Acts via the piRNA metabolic process, which mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and governs the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons. Involved in the primary piRNA metabolic process. Specifically binds to piRNA precursors and promotes the generation of intermediate piRNA processing fragments that are subsequently loaded to Piwi proteins. Acts via its ATP-dependent RNA helicase activity: displays 5-3 RNA unwinding activity and probably mediates unwinding and funneling of single-stranded piRNA precursor transcripts to the endonuclease that catalyzes the first cleavage step of piRNA processing to generate piRNA intermediate fragments that are subsequently loaded to Piwi proteins.
