Tudor domain-containing protein 6 - O60522 (TDRD6_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Tudor domain-containing protein involved in germ cell development, more specifically the formation of chromatoid body (during spermiogenesis), Balbiani body (during oogenesis), germ plasm (upon fertilization), and for proper miRNA expression and spliceosome maturation (By similarity). Essential for RNA-dependent helicase UPF1 localization to chromatoid body, for UPF1-UPF2 and UPF1-DDX4 interactions which are required for mRNA degradation, using the extended 3' UTR-triggered nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) pathway. Involved in spliceosome maturation and mRNA splicing in prophase I spermatocytes through interaction with arginine N-methyltransferase PRMT5 and symmetrically arginine dimethylated SNRPB (small nuclear ribonucleoprotein-associated protein) (By similarity).

Subunit Structure
Found in a mRNP complex (i.e. messenger ribonucleoproteins which correspond to mRNA with bound proteins), at least composed of TDRD1, TDRD6, TDRD7 and DDX4. Found in a complex, at least composed of PIWIL1, PIWIL2, DDX4 and TDRD6. Interacts with Tex19.1 and probably Tex19.2. Interacts with PRMT5. Interacts with SNRPB (when methylated); to trigger spliceosome formation. UniProt
The tudor domains recognize and bind to proteins with dimethylated arginine residues. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
