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. Multiple copies of this gene are found in the AZFb azoospermia factor region of chromosome Y and the encoded protein is thought to be involved in spermatogenesis. Most copies of this locus are pseudogenes, although six highly similar copies have full-length ORFs and are considered functional. Four functional copies of this gene are found within inverted repeat IR2; two functional copies of this gene are found in palindrome P3, along with two copies of PTPN13-like, Y-linked.

    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
