Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Cellular Senescence (REACTOME). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding. An important paralog of this gene is TNRC6A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TNRC6B Gene
Plays a role in RNA-mediated gene silencing by both micro-RNAs (miRNAs) and short interfering RNAs (siRNAs). Required for miRNA-dependent translational repression and siRNA-dependent endonucleolytic cleavage of complementary mRNAs by argonaute family proteins. As scaffoldng protein associates with argonaute proteins bound to partially complementary mRNAs and simultaneously can recruit CCR4-NOT and PAN deadenylase complexes.
