Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RBMY1J 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]
GeneCards Summary for RBMY1J Gene
RBMY1J (RNA Binding Motif Protein, Y-Linked, Family 1, Member J) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RBMY1J include azoospermia. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is CIRBP.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RBMY1J Gene
RNA-binding protein which may be involved in spermatogenesis. Required for sperm development, possibly by participating in pre-mRNA splicing in the testis.
