Summaries for TNRC6A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TNRC6A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the trinucleotide repeat containing 6 protein family. The protein functions in post-transcriptional gene silencing through the RNA interference (RNAi) and microRNA pathways. The protein associates with messenger RNAs and Argonaute proteins in cytoplasmic bodies known as GW-bodies or P-bodies. Inhibiting expression of this gene delocalizes other GW-body proteins and impairs RNAi and microRNA-induced gene silencing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TNRC6A Gene

TNRC6A (Trinucleotide Repeat Containing 6A) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is TNRC6C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TNRC6A Gene

  • Plays a role in RNA-mediated gene silencing by both micro-RNAs (miRNAs) and short interfering RNAs (siRNAs). Required for miRNA-dependent repression of translation and for siRNA-dependent endonucleolytic cleavage of complementary mRNAs by argonaute family proteins. As scaffoldng protein associates with argonaute proteins bound to partially complementary mRNAs and simultaneously can recruit CCR4-NOT and PAN deadenylase complexes.
