RecQ protein like 4
ATP-dependent DNA helicase Q4
HGNC (Hugo) RECQL4
LocusID (NCBI) 9401
Location 8q24.3
Location_base_pair Starts at 145736667 and ends at 145743210 bp from pter ( according to hg19-Feb_2009)  [Mapping]

DNA/RNA

 
Description Spans 6,46 kb; 21 exons; helicase domain is encoded by exons from 8 to 14
Transcription 3,62 kb mRNA

Protein

 
Description 1208 aa; 13,3 kDa; belongs to the RecQ subfamily of helicases and contains from aa 476 to 824 an helicase domain with a potential ATP binding site from aa 502 to 509, and the DEAH box from aa 605 to 608
Expression The RecQ4 gene is predominantly expressed in thymus and testis and at low levels in other organs such as heart, brain, placenta, pancreas, small intestine, and colon, indicating that the expression of RecQ4 gene is somewhat tissue-specific. The overall expression profile resembles that of the BLM gene. Interestingly, the expression of RecQ4 gene is partially upregulated in the G1/S phase of cell cycle.
Localisation nuclear
Function suppresses promiscuous genetic recombination and ensures accurate chromosome segregation.
Homology WRN/RECQ3, BLM/RECQ2
