The protein encoded by this gene belongs to SID1 family of transmembrane dsRNA-gated channels. Family members transport dsRNA into cells and are required for systemic RNA interference. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]
GeneCards Summary for SIDT1 Gene
SIDT1 (SID1 Transmembrane Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include RNA transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SIDT2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SIDT1 Gene
In vitro binds long double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) (500 and 700 base pairs), but not dsRNA shorter than 300 bp. Not involved in RNA autophagy, a process in which RNA is directly imported into lysosomes in an ATP-dependent manner, and degraded.
