Summaries for WDR4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the WD repeat protein family. WD repeats are minimally conserved regions of approximately 40 amino acids typically bracketed by gly-his and trp-asp (GH-WD), which may facilitate formation of heterotrimeric or multiprotein complexes. Members of this family are involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. This gene is excluded as a candidate for a form of nonsyndromic deafness (DFNB10), but is still a candidate for other disorders mapped to 21q22.3 as well as for the development of Down syndrome phenotypes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2012]

GeneCards Summary for WDR4 Gene

WDR4 (WD Repeat Domain 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are tRNA processing and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include tRNA (guanine-N7-)-methyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WDR4 Gene

  • Required for the formation of N(7)-methylguanine at position 46 (m7G46) in tRNA. In the complex, it is required to stabilize and induce conformational changes of the catalytic subunit.
