Summaries for SKIV2L Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SKIV2L Gene

  • DEAD box proteins, characterized by the conserved motif Asp-Glu-Ala-Asp (DEAD), are putative RNA helicases. They are implicated in a number of cellular processes involving alteration of RNA secondary structure such as translation initiation, nuclear and mitochondrial splicing, and ribosome and spliceosome assembly. Based on their distribution patterns, some members of this family are believed to be involved in embryogenesis, spermatogenesis, and cellular growth and division. This gene encodes a DEAD box protein, which is a human homologue of yeast SKI2 and may be involved in antiviral activity by blocking translation of poly(A) deficient mRNAs. This gene is located in the class III region of the major histocompatibility complex. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SKIV2L Gene

SKIV2L (Superkiller Viralicidic Activity 2-Like (S. Cerevisiae)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SKIV2L include trichohepatoenteric syndrome 2 and trichohepatoenteric syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Protein folding. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and ATP-dependent RNA helicase activity.
