CDK5RAP1 CDK5 regulatory subunit associated protein 1

Gene ID: 51654, updated on 7-Oct-2018
Also known as: C42; CGI-05; HSPC167; C20orf34


This gene encodes a regulator of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activity. This protein has also been reported to modify RNA by adding a methylthio-group and may thus have a dual function as an RNA methylthiotransferase and as an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 activity. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
