Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Plays a major role in programmed cell death (PCD or apoptosis) by negatively regulating ced-9 (PubMed:9604928, PubMed:10688797, PubMed:15383288). Binds to and directly inhibits the activity of ced-9, releasing the cell death activator ced-4 from a ced-9/ced-4 containing protein complex and allowing ced-4 to activate the cell-killing caspase ced-3 (PubMed:9604928, PubMed:10688797, PubMed:15383288). Required to activate programmed cell death in the sister cells of the serotonergic neurosecretory motor (NSM) neurons during embryogenesis (PubMed:12874127). Required to activate programmed cell death in the sister cells of the M4 motor neuron and I1 pharyngeal neuron during embryogenesis (PubMed:20713707). During larval development, required for the elimination of transient presynaptic components upstream of ced-9, ced-4 and ced-3 apoptotic pathway (PubMed:26074078). Together with ain-1, a component of the miRNA-induced-silencing complex (miRISC), and probably upstream of ced-3 and ced-4, regulates temporal cell fate patterning during larval development (PubMed:25432023).7 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:i2329D2DB0F019636
