Whirlin - Q9P202 (WHRN_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q9P202: 3
Involved in hearing and vision as member of the USH2 complex. Necessary for elongation and maintenance of inner and outer hair cell stereocilia in the organ of Corti in the inner ear. Involved in the maintenance of the hair bundle ankle region, which connects stereocilia in cochlear hair cells of the inner ear. In retina photoreceptors, required for the maintenance of periciliary membrane complex that seems to play a role in regulating intracellular protein transport. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Forms homooligomers (By similarity). Interacts (via C-terminal PDZ domain) with MYO15A; this interaction is necessary for localization of WHRN to stereocilia tips (By similarity). Interacts (via C-terminal PDZ domain) with MPP1/p55 (PubMed:17584769). Interacts with LRRC4C/NGL1. Interacts with MYO7A. Interacts with RPGR. Interacts with EPS8 (By similarity). Interacts with CASK (By similarity). Interacts with CIB2 (PubMed:23023331). Component of USH2 complex, composed of ADGRV1, PDZD7, USH2A and WHRN. Interacts (via PDZ domains) with PDZD7; the interaction is direct. Interacts (via N-terminal PDZ domain) with USH2A (via cytoplasmic region) (PubMed:16434480). Interacts with ADGRV1/MASS1 (via cytoplasmic region) (PubMed:16434480). 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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.
