Dicer-like protein 4 - P84634 (DCL4_ARATH)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P84634: 1
Ribonuclease (RNase) III involved in RNA-mediated post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS). Functions in the biogenesis of trans-acting small interfering RNAs (ta-siRNAs, derived from the TAS1, TAS2 or TAS3 endogenous transcripts) by cleaving small dsRNAs into 21-24 nucleotide ta-siRNAs. Functions with the dsRNA-binding protein DRB4 in ta-siRNAs processing. Acts in the RDR6/SGS3/DCL4/AGO7 ta-siRNA pathway involved in leaf developmental timing. Plays a role in transitive silencing of transgenes by processing secondary siRNAs. This pathway, which requires DCL2 and RDR6, amplifies silencing by using the target RNA as substrate to generate secondary siRNAs, providing an efficient mechanism for long-distance silencing. Required for the production of the 30-40 nucleotide bacterial-induced long siRNAs (lsiRNA). May participate with DCL3 in the production of 24 nucleotide repeat-associated siRNAs (ra-siRNAs) which derive from heterochromatin and DNA repeats such as transposons. Plays an important role in antiviral RNA silencing. Involved in the production of viral siRNAs derived from the cucumber mosaic virus (CMV), turnip crinkle virus (TCV) and tobacco rattle virus (TRV). Targeted by the viral silencing suppressor (VSR) protein 2b of the cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) that inactivates DCL4 function in RNA silencing. Does not seem to be involved in microRNAs (miRNAs) processing. 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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

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.
