Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q9PW66: 1
Potent agonist for both PKR1/PROKR1 and PKR2/PROKR2, and inducer of a potent and long-lasting hyperalgesia (PubMed:16299550, PubMed:20677202). Shows an EC(50) of 0.264 nM, when tested on neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y) which endogenously express mainly PKR2/PROKR2 (PubMed:20677202). Also potentiates capsaicin-induced TRPV1 current, when tested on DRG neurons (PubMed:16687502, PubMed:20677202). Induces a biphasic hyperalgesia to tactile and thermal stimuli after systemic injection of this protein into rat (PubMed:10422759, PubMed:12466223). The initial phase of hyperalgesia is caused by a local action on nociceptors, because intraplantar injection of this protein causes a strong and localized hyperalgesia with a similar time course to that of the initial phase of hyperalgesia seen with systemic injection. The secondary phase of hyperalgesia is not seen with local intraplantar injection and is therefore probably attributable to a central action of this protein (PubMed:16687502). At subnanomolar concentrations, this protein both induces potent chemotaxis of macrophages and stimulates LPS-induced production of the proinflammatory cytokines IL-1 and IL-12 (PubMed:16299550). In vivo, this protein potently stimulates the contraction of the guinea-pig gastrointestinal (GI) smooth muscle (at nanomolar concentration) (PubMed:10422759). 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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.
