Summaries for PABPC5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PABPC5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that binds to the polyA tail found at the 3' end of most eukaryotic mRNAs. It is thought to play a role in the regulation of mRNA metabolic processes in the cytoplasm. This gene is located in a gene-poor region within the X-specific 13d-sY43 subinterval of the chromosome Xq21.3/Yp11.2 homology block. It is located close to translocation breakpoints associated with premature ovarian failure, and is therefore a potential candidate gene for this disorder. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for PABPC5 Gene

PABPC5 (Poly(A) Binding Protein, Cytoplasmic 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RNA transport and Deadenylation-dependent mRNA decay. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is PABPC1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PABPC5 Gene

  • Binds the poly(A) tail of mRNA. May be involved in cytoplasmic regulatory processes of mRNA metabolism. Can probably bind to cytoplasmic RNA sequences other than poly(A) in vivo (By similarity).
