Summaries for TERF1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TERF1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a telomere specific protein which is a component of the telomere nucleoprotein complex. This protein is present at telomeres throughout the cell cycle and functions as an inhibitor of telomerase, acting in cis to limit the elongation of individual chromosome ends. The protein structure contains a C-terminal Myb motif, a dimerization domain near its N-terminus and an acidic N-terminus. Two transcripts of this gene are alternatively spliced products.

GeneCards Summary for TERF1 Gene

TERF1 (Telomeric Repeat Binding Factor (NIMA-Interacting) 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TERF1 include townes-brocks syndrome. Among its related pathways are Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and chromatin binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TERF1 Gene

  • Binds the telomeric double-stranded 5-TTAGGG-3 repeat and negatively regulates telomere length. Involved in the regulation of the mitotic spindle. Component of the shelterin complex (telosome) that is involved in the regulation of telomere length and protection. Shelterin associates with arrays of double-stranded 5-TTAGGG-3 repeats added by telomerase and protects chromosome ends; without its protective activity, telomeres are no longer hidden from the DNA damage surveillance and chromosome ends are inappropriately processed by DNA repair pathways.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer; can contain both isoforms. Found in a complex with POT1; TINF2 and TNKS1. Interacts with ATM, TINF2, TNKS1, TNKS2, PINX1, NEK2 and MAPRE1. Component of the shelterin complex (telosome) composed of TERF1, TERF2, TINF2, TERF2IP ACD and POT1. Interacts with RLIM (via N-terminus). Interacts with FBXO4. Interaction with TINF2 protects against interaction with FBXO4 and subsequent polyubiquitination and proteasomal degradation. Interacts with GNL3L; this interaction promotes homodimerization. Interacts with TIN2. Interacts with RTEL1. Interactions with GNL3L and TIN2 are mutually exclusive. Interacts with CCDC79/TERB1 (By similarity).
