Summaries for WDR77 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WDR77 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is an androgen receptor coactivator that forms a complex with protein arginine methyltransferase 5, which modifies specific arginines to dimethylarginines in several spliceosomal Sm proteins. The encoded protein may be involved in the early stages of prostate cancer, with most of the protein being nuclear-localized in benign cells but cytoplasmic in cancer cells. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for WDR77 Gene

WDR77 (WD Repeat Domain 77) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Chromatin organization and Regulation of Glucokinase by Glucokinase Regulatory Protein. GO annotations related to this gene include ligand-dependent nuclear receptor transcription coactivator activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WDR77 Gene

  • Non-catalytic component of the 20S PRMT5-containing methyltransferase complex, which modifies specific arginines to dimethylarginines in several spliceosomal Sm proteins and histones. This modification targets Sm proteins to the survival of motor neurons (SMN) complex for assembly into small nuclear ribonucleoprotein core particles. Might play a role in transcription regulation. The 20S PRMT5-containing methyltransferase complex also methylates the Piwi proteins (PIWIL1, PIWIL2 and PIWIL4), methylation of Piwi proteins being required for the interaction with Tudor domain-containing proteins and subsequent localization to the meiotic nuage.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the methylosome, a 20S complex containing at least PRMT5, CLNS1A, WDR77, PRMT1 and ERH (PubMed:25284789). Directly interacts with PRMT5, as well as with several Sm proteins, including SNRPB and SNRPD2 and, more weakly, SNRPD3 and SNRPE. Forms a compact hetero-octamer with PRMT5, decorating the outer surface of a PRMT5 tetramer. Interacts with SUZ12 and histone H2A/HIST2H2AC, but not with histones H2B, H3 nor H4. Interacts with CTDP1 and LSM11. Interacts with APEX1, AR and NKX3-1. Interacts with CHTOP (PubMed:25284789).
