GeneCards Summary for RCC1 Gene
RCC1 (Regulator Of Chromosome Condensation 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RCC1 include Renal-Hepatic-Pancreatic Dysplasia and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Ran Pathway and Validated targets of C-MYC transcriptional activation. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and nucleosomal DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is RPGR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RCC1 Gene
Guanine-nucleotide releasing factor that promotes the exchange of Ran-bound GDP by GTP. Involved in the regulation of onset of chromosome condensation in the S phase. Binds both to the nucleosomes and double-stranded DNA. RCC1-Ran complex (together with other proteins) acts as a component of a signal transmission pathway that detects unreplicated DNA. Plays a key role in nucleo-cytoplasmic transport, mitosis and nuclear-envelope assembly.
