EDC3 is associated with an mRNA-decapping complex required for removal of the 5-prime cap from mRNA prior to its degradation from the 5-prime end (Fenger-Gron et al., 2005 [PubMed 16364915]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for EDC3 Gene
EDC3 (Enhancer Of MRNA Decapping 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EDC3 include mental retardation, autosomal recessive 50 and autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Deadenylation-dependent mRNA decay. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and RNA binding.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EDC3 Gene
Binds single-stranded RNA. Involved in the process of mRNA degradation and in the positive regulation of mRNA decapping. May play a role in spermiogenesis and oogenesis.
