External Ids for RIPPLY1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein similar to a zebrafish protein which acts as a transcriptional repressor in and is required for somite segmentation in zebrafish embryos (PMID: 16326386). Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for RIPPLY1 Gene
RIPPLY1 (Ripply Transcriptional Repressor 1) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is RIPPLY2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RIPPLY1 Gene
Plays a role in somitogenesis. Essential for transcriptional repression of the segmental patterning genes, thus terminating the segmentation program in the presomitic mesoderm, and also required for the maintenance of rostrocaudal polarity in somites (By similarity).
