Summaries for UNK Gene

GeneCards Summary for UNK Gene

UNK (Unk Zinc Finger) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UNK include Thalamic Neoplasm and Bestiality. An important paralog of this gene is UNKL.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for UNK Gene

  • Sequence-specific RNA-binding protein which plays an important role in the establishment and maintenance of the early morphology of cortical neurons during embryonic development. Acts as a translation repressor and controls a translationally regulated cell morphology program to ensure proper structuring of the nervous system. Translational control depends on recognition of its binding element within target mRNAs which consists of a mandatory UAG trimer upstream of a U/A-rich motif. Associated with polysomes (PubMed:25737280).
