Summaries for BRDT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BRDT Gene

  • BRDT is similar to the RING3 protein family. It possesses 2 bromodomain motifs and a PEST sequence (a cluster of proline, glutamic acid, serine, and threonine residues), characteristic of proteins that undergo rapid intracellular degradation. The bromodomain is found in proteins that regulate transcription. Several transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BRDT Gene

BRDT (Bromodomain, Testis-Specific) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription coactivator activity and lysine-acetylated histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is BRD4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BRDT Gene

  • Testis-specific chromatin protein that specifically binds histone H4 acetylated at Lys-5 and Lys-8 (H4K5ac and H4K8ac, respectively) and plays a key role in spermatogenesis. Required in late pachytene spermatocytes: plays a role in meiotic and post-meiotic cells by binding to acetylated histones at the promoter of specific meiotic and post-meiotic genes, facilitating their activation at the appropriate time. In the post-meiotic phase of spermatogenesis, binds to hyperacetylated histones and participates in their general removal from DNA. Also acts as a component of the splicing machinery in pachytene spermatocytes and round spermatids and participates in 3-UTR truncation of specific mRNAs in post-meiotic spermatids. Required for chromocenter organization, a structure comprised of peri-centromeric heterochromatin.

    Size:
    947 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    107954 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with mRNA splicing machinery proteins SRSF2, DDX5, HNRNPK and TARDBP. Interacts with the acetylated N-terminus of histone H1, H2, H3 and H4. Interacts with P-TEFb components CDK9 and CCNT1/cyclin-T1. Interacts with SMARCE1 (By similarity). Interacts with the acetylated N-terminus of histone H1.4, H2A, H2B, H3 and H4.
    Miscellaneous:
    • BRDT is a promising target for male contraception. Inhibition by thienodiazepine inhibitor (+)-JQ1 that binds Asn-109, prevents recognition of acetylated histone H4, causing a complete and reversible contraceptive effect in male mice (PubMed:22901802).

mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for BRDT Gene

Q58F21-BRDT_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: Testis-specific. A 3-fold higher expression is seen in adult testis than in embryo testis. Expression seems to be correlated with histone H4 hyperacetylation during the haploid phase of spermatogenesis (spermiogenesis). No expression, or very low expression is seen in patients testes with abnormal spermatogenesis. Expressed in cancers such as non-small cell lung cancer and squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck as well as of esophagus, but not in melanoma or in cancers of the colon, breast, kidney and bladder.
