Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RQCD1 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the highly conserved RCD1 protein family. The encoded protein is a transcriptional cofactor and a core protein of the CCR4-NOT complex. It may be involved in signal transduction as well as retinoic acid-regulated cell differentiation and development. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for RQCD1 Gene
RQCD1 (RCD1 Required For Cell Differentiation1 Homolog (S. Pombe)) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Deadenylation-dependent mRNA decay. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein domain specific binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RQCD1 Gene
Component of the CCR4-NOT complex which is one of the major cellular mRNA deadenylases and is linked to various cellular processes including bulk mRNA degradation, miRNA-mediated repression, translational repression during translational initiation and general transcription regulation. Additional complex functions may be a consequence of its influence on mRNA expression. Involved in down-regulation of MYB- and JUN-dependent transcription. May play a role in cell differentiation (By similarity). Can bind oligonucleotides, such as poly-G, poly-C or poly-T (in vitro), but the physiological relevance of this is not certain. Does not bind poly-A. Enhances ligand-dependent transcriptional activity of nuclear hormone receptors, including RARA, expect ESR1-mediated transcription that is not only slightly increased, if at all.
