Homo sapiens complex locus KIAA0802, encoding KIAA0802.
SUMMARY back to top
RefSeq annotates one representative transcript (NM included in AceView variant.a), but Homo sapiens cDNA sequences in GenBank, dbEST, Trace and SRA, filtered against clone rearrangements, coaligned on the genome and clustered in a minimal non-redundant way by the manually supervised AceView program, support at least 14 spliced variants.

Note that this locus is complex: it appears to produce several proteins with no sequence overlap.
Expression: According to AceView, this gene is expressed at high level, 1.4 times the average gene in this release. The sequence of this gene is defined by 177 GenBank accessions from 146 cDNA clones, some from cerebellum (seen 28 times), brain (23), liver (9), eye (7), testis (6), whole brain (6), chondrosarcoma (5) and 61 other tissues. We annotate structural defects or features in 7 cDNA clones.
Alternative mRNA variants and regulation: The gene contains 32 distinct gt-ag introns. Transcription produces 20 different mRNAs, 14 alternatively spliced variants and 6 unspliced forms. There are 11 probable alternative promotors, 5 non overlapping alternative last exons and 6 validated alternative polyadenylation sites (see the diagram). The mRNAs appear to differ by truncation of the 5' end, truncation of the 3' end, presence or absence of 7 cassette exons, overlapping exons with different boundaries, splicing versus retention of one intron. 155 bp of this gene are antisense to spliced gene LOC100287082, raising the possibility of regulated alternate expression.
Note that mRNA .eAug10 was found in vivo, although it is a predicted target of nonsense mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
Efficacy of translation may be reduced by the presence of a shorter translated product (uORF) initiating at an AUG upstream of the main open reading frame (in variant aAug10, dAug10, eAug10).
Function: There are 5 articles specifically referring to this gene in PubMed. Proteins are expected to localize in various compartments (cytoplasm, membrane, nucleus). A putative protein interactor has been described (MARK2).
Protein coding potential: 12 spliced and 3 unspliced mRNAs putatively encode good proteins, altogether 15 different isoforms (9 complete, 6 partial), some containing some transmembrane domains, a coiled coil stretch [Psort2]. The remaining 5 mRNA variants (2 spliced, 3 unspliced; 1 partial) appear not to encode good proteins. Finally proteins from this gene may be modulated by acetylation; di-methylation; phosphorylation, as detailed at PhosphoSite.

- The level for significantly expressed genes is color coded in 8 equal sized bins (light to dark green). Light gray is for weak not-accurately measured expression (2 to 8 reads above intergenic background); dark gray for no expression or no sequence conservation (0 read in gene). The plot to the right shows the distribution of measured expression values in all tissues for all genes (blue) and for this gene (green), in Magic index = log2(1000 sFPKM).

Alternative mRNAs are shown aligned from 5' to 3' on a virtual genome where introns have been shrunk to a minimal length. Exon size is proportional to length, intron height reflects the number of cDNAs supporting each intron, the small numbers show the support of the introns in deep sequencing (with details in mouse-over) . Introns of the same color are identical, of different colors are different. 'Good proteins' are pink, partial or not-good proteins are yellow, uORFs are green. 5' cap or3' poly A flags show completeness of the transcript.
