Steroid receptor RNA activator (SRA, or SRA1; MIM 603819) is a complex RNA molecule containing multiple stable stem-loop structures that functions in coactivation of nuclear receptors. SLIRP interacts with stem-loop structure-7 of SRA (STR7) and modulates nuclear receptor transactivation (Hatchell et al., 2006 [PubMed 16762838]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SLIRP Gene
SLIRP (SRA Stem-Loop Interacting RNA Binding Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLIRP Gene
RNA-binding protein that acts as a nuclear receptor corepressor. Probably acts by binding the SRA RNA, and repressing the SRA-mediated nuclear receptor coactivation. Binds the STR7 loop of SRA RNA. Also able to repress glucocorticoid (GR), androgen (AR), thyroid (TR) and VDR-mediated transactivation.
