Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ANKRD17 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of ankyrin repeat-containing proteins, and contains two distinct arrays of ankyrin repeats in its amino-terminal region, one with 15 ankyrin repeats, and the other with 10 ankyrin repeats. It also contains a nuclear export signal, nuclear localization signal, and a cyclin-binding RXL motif. Localization of this protein to the nucleus has been shown experimentally, and interactions between this protein and cyclin-dependent kinase 2 have been observed. It has been suggested that this protein plays a role in both DNA replication and in both anti-viral and anti-bacterial innate immune pathways. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ANKRD17 Gene
Could play pivotal roles in cell cycle and DNA regulation (PubMed:19150984). Involved in innate immune defense against viruse by positively regulating the viral dsRNA receptors DDX58 and IFIH1 signaling pathways (PubMed:22328336). Involves in NOD2- and NOD1-mediated responses to bacteria suggesting a role in innate antibacterial immune pathways too (PubMed:23711367). Target of enterovirus 71 which is the major etiological agent of HFMD (hand, foot and mouth disease) (PubMed:17276651). Could play a central role for the formation and/or maintenance of the blood vessels of the circulation system (By similarity).
