Human Gene NKX2-6 (ENST00000325017.4) from GENCODE V44
Description: Homo sapiens NK2 homeobox 6 (NKX2-6), mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_001136271) RefSeq Summary (NM_001136271): This gene encodes a homeobox-containing protein that belongs to the NK-2 homeobox family. This protein is a vertebrate homolog of Drosophila homeobox-containing protein called 'tinman', which has been shown to be essential for development of the heart-like dorsal vessel. In conjunction with related gene, NKX2-5, this gene may play a role in both pharyngeal and cardiac embryonic development. Mutations in this gene are associated with persistent truncus arteriosus.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]. Gencode Transcript: ENST00000325017.4 Gencode Gene: ENSG00000180053.8 Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg38 chr8:23,701,740-23,706,756 Size: 5,017 Total Exon Count: 2 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg38 chr8:23,702,451-23,706,598 Size: 4,148 Coding Exon Count: 2
ID:NKX26_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Homeobox protein Nkx-2.6; AltName: Full=Homeobox protein NK-2 homolog F; FUNCTION: In conjunction with NKX2-5, may play a role in both pharyngeal and cardiac embryonic development (By similarity). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Probable). DISEASE: Defects in NKX2-6 may be a cause of conotruncal heart malformations (CTHM) [MIM:217095]. CTHM defines a group of congenital heart defects involving the outflow tracts. Examples include truncus arteriosus communis, double-outlet right ventricle and transposition of great arteries. Truncus arteriosus communis is characterized by a single outflow tract instead of a separate aorta and pulmonary artery. In transposition of the great arteries, the aorta arises from the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery from the left ventricle. In double outlet of the right ventricle, both the pulmonary artery and aorta arise from the right ventricle. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NK-2 homeobox family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on A6NCS4
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.
