Gene: Mepce (methylphosphate capping enzyme) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mepce
Name: methylphosphate capping enzyme
CRRD ID: 1560550
Description: Predicted to have O-methyltransferase activity; RNA 5'-methyltransferase activity; and snRNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including RNA modification; positive regulation of protein localization to Cajal body; and regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II. Predicted to localize to nucleus and ribonucleoprotein complex. Orthologous to human MEPCE (methylphosphate capping enzyme); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; cadmium dichloride; endosulfan.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 7SK snRNA methylphosphate capping enzyme; LOC304361; similar to Hypothetical protein MGC28888
