GeneCards Summary for TCEA3 Gene
TCEA3 (Transcription Elongation Factor A (SII), 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TCEA3 include cockayne syndrome. Among its related pathways are Assembly of RNA Polymerase-II Initiation Complex. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding. An important paralog of this gene is TCEA2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TCEA3 Gene
Necessary for efficient RNA polymerase II transcription elongation past template-encoded arresting sites. The arresting sites in DNA have the property of trapping a certain fraction of elongating RNA polymerases that pass through, resulting in locked ternary complexes. Cleavage of the nascent transcript by S-II allows the resumption of elongation from the new 3-terminus
