Miscellaneousi

Miscellaneous

This gene belongs to a family of genes organized in clustered repeats. They have a high degree of predicted sequence identity, but differ by scattered single nucleotide substitution. Their sequences contain either the antigenic peptide YYWPRPRRY or YRPRPRRY which is recognized by cytotoxic T-cells.

Caution

The first GAGE nomenclature was based on identified mRNA sequences, but the high identity of the GAGE members made impossible to separate products of paralogous genes from polymorph products. PubMed:18179644 presented a new GAGE gene nomenclature based on the identified genes and their products.Curated

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into Uniref entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
