Summaries for SEPT6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SEPT6 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the septin family of GTPases. Members of this family are required for cytokinesis. One version of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia is the result of a reciprocal translocation between chromosomes 11 and X, with the breakpoint associated with the genes encoding the mixed-lineage leukemia and septin 2 proteins. This gene encodes four transcript variants encoding three distinct isoforms. An additional transcript variant has been identified, but its biological validity has not been determined.

    Protein attributes for SEPT6 Gene

    434 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    49717 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Septins polymerize into heterooligomeric protein complexes that form filaments, and associate with cellular membranes, actin filaments and microtubules. GTPase activity is required for filament formation. Filaments are assembled from asymmetrical heterotrimers, composed of SEPT2, SEPT6 and SEPT7 that associate head-to-head to form a hexameric unit. Within the trimer, directly interacts with SEPT2 and SEPT7. Also interacts with SEPT9 and SEPT12. Interaction with SEPT12 alters filament structure. Interacts with SOCS7. Interacts with HCV NS5B and with HNRNPA1.
    • Coordinated expression with SEPT2 and SEPT7.
