External Ids for RP9 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene can be bound and phosphorylated by the protooncogene PIM1 product, a serine/threonine protein kinase . This protein localizes in nuclear speckles containing the splicing factors, and has a role in pre-mRNA splicing. CBF1-interacting protein (CIR), a corepressor of CBF1, can also bind to this protein and effects alternative splicing. Mutations in this gene result in autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa-9. This gene has a pseudogene (GeneID: 441212), which is located in tandem array approximately 166 kb distal to this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RP9 Gene
Is thought to be a target protein for the PIM1 kinase. May play some roles in B-cell proliferation in association with PIM1 (By similarity).
