HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11970
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Putative ATP-dependent RNA helicase TDRD9
  1. Tudor domain-containing protein 9
Gene Name TDRD9
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Probable ATP-binding RNA helicase which plays a central role during spermatogenesis by repressing transposable elements and prevent their mobilization, which is essential for the germline integrity. Acts via the piRNA metabolic process, which mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and govern the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons. Its association with PIWIL4 and the piP-bodies suggests a participation in the secondary piRNAs metabolic process (By similarity).
