Detailed entry information

Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000357
UniProt IDQ5T8I9
Primary gene name(s)HENMT1
Synonym gene name(s)C1orf59
Protein nameSmall RNA 2'-O-methyltransferase
Protein functionMethyltransferase that adds a 2'-O-methyl group at the 3'-end of piRNAs, a class of 24 to 30 nucleotide RNAs that are generated by a Dicer-independent mechanism and are primarily derived from transposons and other repeated sequence elements. This probably protects the 3'-end of piRNAs from uridylation activity and subsequent degradation. Stabilization of piRNAs is essential for gametogenesis, By similarity. {ECO:0000250}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasm {ECO:0000250}. Note=Component of the meiotic nuage, also named P granule, a germ-cell-specific organelle required to repress transposon activity during meiosis. {ECO:0000250}.
