GeneCards Summary for RCC1 Gene
RCC1 (Regulator Of Chromosome Condensation 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RCC1 include Raynaud Disease and Microcystic Meningioma. Among its related pathways are HIV Life Cycle and Cell cycle_Spindle assembly and chromosome separation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and nucleosomal DNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is RPGR.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for RCC1 Gene
Guanine-nucleotide releasing factor that promotes the exchange of Ran-bound GDP by GTP, and thereby plays an important role in RAN-mediated functions in nuclear import and mitosis (PubMed:1944575, PubMed:17435751, PubMed:20668449, PubMed:22215983, PubMed:11336674). Contributes to the generation of high levels of chromosome-associated, GTP-bound RAN, which is important for mitotic spindle assembly and normal progress through mitosis (PubMed:12194828, PubMed:17435751, PubMed:22215983). Via its role in maintaining high levels of GTP-bound RAN in the nucleus, contributes to the release of cargo proteins from importins after nuclear import (PubMed:22215983). Involved in the regulation of onset of chromosome condensation in the S phase (PubMed:3678831). Binds both to the nucleosomes and double-stranded DNA (PubMed:17435751, PubMed:18762580).
