Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TSNAX Gene
This gene encodes a protein which specifically interacts with translin, a DNA-binding protein that binds consensus sequences at breakpoint junctions of chromosomal translocations. The encoded protein contains bipartite nuclear targeting sequences that may provide nuclear transport for translin, which lacks any nuclear targeting motifs. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TSNAX Gene
TSNAX (Translin-Associated Factor X) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TSNAX include schizophrenia. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding and protein transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is TSNAX-DISC1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TSNAX Gene
Acts in combination with TSN as an endonuclease involved in the activation of the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC). Possible role in spermatogenesis.
