Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CCT4 Gene
The chaperonin containing TCP1 (MIM 186980) complex (CCT), also called the TCP1 ring complex, consists of 2 back-to-back rings, each containing 8 unique but homologous subunits, such as CCT4. CCT assists the folding of newly translated polypeptide substrates through multiple rounds of ATP-driven release and rebinding of partially folded intermediate forms. Substrates of CCT include the cytoskeletal proteins actin (see MIM 102560) and tubulin (see MIM 191130), as well as alpha-transducin (MIM 139330) (Won et al., 1998 [PubMed 9819444]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CCT4 Gene
CCT4 (Chaperonin Containing TCP1 Subunit 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CCT4 include Sensory Peripheral Neuropathy. Among its related pathways are Cooperation of Prefoldin and TriC/CCT in actin and tubulin folding and Cargo trafficking to the periciliary membrane. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is CCT5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CCT4 Gene
Component of the chaperonin-containing T-complex (TRiC), a molecular chaperone complex that assists the folding of proteins upon ATP hydrolysis (PubMed:25467444). The TRiC complex mediates the folding of WRAP53/TCAB1, thereby regulating telomere maintenance (PubMed:25467444). As part of the TRiC complex may play a role in the assembly of BBSome, a complex involved in ciliogenesis regulating transports vesicles to the cilia (PubMed:20080638). The TRiC complex plays a role in the folding of actin and tubulin (Probable).
