Human Gene RERE (ENST00000337907.7) from GENCODE V43
  Description: Homo sapiens arginine-glutamic acid dipeptide repeats (RERE), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_012102)
RefSeq Summary (NM_012102): This gene encodes a member of the atrophin family of arginine-glutamic acid (RE) dipeptide repeat-containing proteins. The encoded protein co-localizes with a transcription factor in the nucleus, and its overexpression triggers apoptosis. A similar protein in mouse associates with histone deacetylase and is thought to function as a transcriptional co-repressor during embryonic development. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Arginine-glutamic acid dipeptide repeats protein; AltName: Full=Atrophin-1-like protein; AltName: Full=Atrophin-1-related protein;
FUNCTION: Plays a role as a transcriptional repressor during development. May play a role in the control of cell survival. Overexpression of RERE recruits BAX to the nucleus particularly to POD and triggers caspase-3 activation, leading to cell death.
SUBUNIT: Interacts with HDAC1 (By similarity). Interacts with ATN1. Interaction with ATN1 is improved when the poly-Gln region of ATN1 is extended. Interacts with FAT1.
INTERACTION: P54259:ATN1; NbExp=3; IntAct=EBI-948076, EBI-945980;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus. Note=Localized in nuclear bodies of variables size. Colocalized with PML and BAX in nuclear PODs.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely expressed. Expressed in tumor cell lines.
DOMAIN: The interaction with ATN1 is mediated by the coiled coil domain.
DISEASE: Note=A chromosomal aberration involving RERE is found in the neuroblastoma cell line. Translocation t(1;15)(p36.2;q24).
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 BAH domain.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 ELM2 domain.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 GATA-type zinc finger.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 SANT domain.
SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAC31120.1; Type=Frameshift; Positions=588, 596; Sequence=AAD27584.1; Type=Erroneous initiation;

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q9P2R6
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.
