Summaries for RBMY1B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RBMY1B Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein containing an RNA-binding motif in the N-terminus and four SRGY (serine, arginine, glycine, tyrosine) boxes in the C-terminus. This protein likely functions as a splicing factor during spermatogenesis. Multiple closely related paralogs of this gene are found in a gene cluster in the AZFb azoospermia factor region of chromosome Y. Most of these related copies are thought to be pseudogenes, though several likely encode functional proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]

    496 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    55835 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with splicing factor proteins SFRS3/SRP20, TRA2B/SFRS10, KHDRBS1/SAM68 and KHDRBS3.
    • The RBMY1 proteins are encoded by repeated regions of the Y chromosome, mostly within the AZFb region. The exact number of functional copies is unclear and may vary between individuals, and some of them may represent pseudogenes. The proteins are very similar, which makes the characterization of each protein difficult. Thus, most experiments do not discriminate between the different members. One can therefore suppose that reported interactions with a RBMY1 protein involve all the proteins.
