Entrez Gene Summary for WAC Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene contains a WW domain, which is a protein module found in a wide range of signaling proteins. This domain mediates protein-protein interactions and binds proteins containing short linear peptide motifs that are proline-rich or contain at least one proline. This gene product shares 94% sequence identity with the WAC protein in mouse, however, its exact function is not known. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for WAC Gene

WAC (WW Domain Containing Adaptor With Coiled-Coil) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and RNA polymerase II core binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WAC Gene

  • Acts as a linker between gene transcription and histone H2B monoubiquitination at Lys-120 (H2BK120ub1). Interacts with the RNA polymerase II transcriptional machinery via its WW domain and with RNF20-RNF40 via its coiled coil region, thereby linking and regulating H2BK120ub1 and gene transcription. Regulates the cell-cycle checkpoint activation in response to DNA damage. Positive regulator of amino acid starvation-induced autophagy. May negatively regulate the ubiquitin proteasome pathway.
