Summary
Predicted to enable deoxyribonuclease inhibitor activity; protein domain specific binding activity; and protein folding chaperone. Acts upstream of or within negative regulation of apoptotic DNA fragmentation; positive regulation of apoptotic process; and thymocyte apoptotic process. Predicted to be located in several cellular components, including chromatin; cytosol; and nucleus. Predicted to be part of protein-containing complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; heart; hemolymphoid system gland; liver; and metanephros. Orthologous to human DFFA (DNA fragmentation factor subunit alpha).

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) contains an alternate 3' terminal exon, resulting in a different 3' UTR and 3' coding region, compared to variant 1. It encodes isoform b, which has a shorter and distinct C-terminus compared to isoform a.

RNA

  1. NR_104263.1 RNA Sequence

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) lacks two internal exons and uses alternate splice sites in two other internal exons, compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the longest open reading frame is in a different frame compared to variant 1, and there is no support for the predicted protein encoded by this ORF.
