Kin17_mid is the conserved central 169 residue region of a family of Kin17 proteins. Towards the N-terminal end there is a zinc-finger domain, and in human and mouse members there is a RecA-like domain further downstream. The Kin17 protein in humans forms intra-nuclear foci during cell proliferation and is re-distributed in the nucleoplasm during the cell cycle .
This entry represents the conserved central 169 residue region of the Kin17 DNA/RNA-binding proteins. The N-terminal region of Kin17 contains a zinc-finger domain, while in the human and mouse proteins there is a RecA-like domain found in the C-terminal region. In humans, Kin17 protein forms intra-nuclear foci during cell proliferation and is re-distributed in the nucleoplasm during the cell cycle [PUBMED:10964102].
