Human Gene CXXC5 (uc003let.2) Description and Page Index
Description: Homo sapiens CXXC finger protein 5 (CXXC5), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_016463): The protein encoded by this gene is a retinoid-inducible nuclear protein containing a CXXC-type zinc finger motif. The encoded protein is involved in myelopoiesis, is required for DNA damage-induced p53 activation, regulates the differentiation of C2C12 myoblasts into myocytes, and negatively regulates cutaneous wound healing. Several transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=CXXC-type zinc finger protein 5; Short=CF5; AltName: Full=Putative MAPK-activating protein PM08; AltName: Full=Putative NF-kappa-B-activating protein 102; AltName: Full=Retinoid-inducible nuclear factor; Short=RINF;
FUNCTION: May indirectly participate in activation of the NF- kappa-B and MAPK pathways. Acts as a mediator of BMP4-mediated modulation of canonical Wnt signaling activity in neural stem cells (By similarity). Required for DNA damage-induced ATM phosphorylation, p53 activation and cell cycle arrest. Involved in myelopoiesis. SUBUNIT: Interacts with DVL1 (By similarity). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. Cytoplasm (By similarity). Note=Colocalizes with DVL1 in large bodies localized just outside the nuclear membrane (By similarity). INDUCTION: By retinoic acid. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 CXXC-type zinc finger. SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAF36115.1; Type=Frameshift; Positions=32, 102, 119, 250, 265; Sequence=AAH02490.3; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=AAH06428.1; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=AAH17439.2; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=AAH24040.2; Type=Erroneous initiation; Sequence=AAH41013.2; Type=Erroneous initiation;

mRNA Secondary Structure of 3' and 5' UTRs
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q7LFL8
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
