QKI QKI, KH domain containing RNA binding

Gene ID: 9444, updated on 16-Oct-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: QK; Hqk; QK1; QK3; hqkI


The protein encoded by this gene is an RNA-binding protein that regulates pre-mRNA splicing, export of mRNAs from the nucleus, protein translation, and mRNA stability. The encoded protein is involved in myelinization and oligodendrocyte differentiation and may play a role in schizophrenia. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
