The protein encoded by this gene competes with pICln for inclusion in the protein arginine methyltransferase 5 complex. This complex targets substrates for dimethylation. The encoded protein is essential for the last steps in the maturation of 40S subunits. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
GeneCards Summary for RIOK1 Gene
RIOK1 (RIO Kinase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RIOK1 include Giant Axonal Neuropathy. Among its related pathways are rRNA processing in the nucleus and cytosol and Ribosome biogenesis in eukaryotes. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RIOK3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIOK1 Gene
Involved in the final steps of cytoplasmic maturation of the 40S ribosomal subunit. Involved in processing of 18S-E pre-rRNA to the mature 18S rRNA. Required for the recycling of NOB1 and PNO1 from the late 40S precursor (PubMed:22072790). The association with the very late 40S subunit intermediate may involve a translation-like checkpoint point cycle preceeding the binding to the 60S ribosomal subunit (By similarity). Despite the protein kinase domain is proposed to act predominantly as an ATPase (By similarity). The catalytic activity regulates its dynamic association with the 40S subunit (By similarity).
