ID:EMX1_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Homeobox protein EMX1; AltName: Full=Empty spiracles homolog 1; AltName: Full=Empty spiracles-like protein 1; FUNCTION: Transcription factor, which in cooperation with EMX2, acts to generate the boundary between the roof and archipallium in the developing brain. May function in combinations with OTX1/2 to specify cell fates in the developing central nervous system. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Probable). TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Cerebral cortex. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the EMX homeobox family. SIMILARITY: Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain. SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAH45762.2; Type=Erroneous initiation;
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 Q04741
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.
