This gene encodes a protein which contains a conserved nuclear localization signal. The encoded protein may have a role in spermatogenesis, cell cycle control, and in meiotic cell division. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for PELO Gene
PELO (Pelota Homolog (Drosophila)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Focal adhesion and mRNA surveillance pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include endonuclease activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PELO Gene
Required for normal chromosome segregation during cell division and genomic stability (By similarity). May function in recognizing stalled ribosomes and triggering endonucleolytic cleavage of the mRNA, a mechanism to release non-functional ribosomes and degrade damaged mRNAs. May have ribonuclease activity (Potential).
