Annotation score:3 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>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein.

<p>This section provides any useful information about the protein, mostly biological knowledge.<p><a href='/help/function_section' target='_top'>More...</a></p>Functioni

Multifunctional protein that promotes group II intron splicing and mobility by acting both on RNA and DNA. It has three activities: reverse transcriptase (RT) for intron duplication, maturase to promote splicing, and DNA endonuclease for site-specific cleavage of recipient alleles. The intron-encoded protein promotes splicing by facilitating the formation of the catalytically active structure of the intron RNA. After splicing, the protein remains bound to the excised intron lariat RNA, forming ribonucleoprotein particles, and cleaving the antisense strand of the recipient DNA in the 3' exon. After DNA cleavage, retrohoming occurs by a target DNA-primed reverse transcription of the intron RNA that had reverse spliced into the sense strand of the recipient DNA. It also contributes to the recognition of the DNA target site and acts as a repressor of its own translation.

Miscellaneous

The correct folding of LtrA seems to be facilitated by binding to the unspliced precursor or intron RNA. RNA would serve in part as a chaperone that promotes folding of the protein into an active conformation. Purified protein lacks endonuclease activity unless complexed with intron lariat RNA. It may preferentially function in cis by binding to the intron RNA from which it was translated.

<p>This subsection of the ‘Function’ section provides information relevant to cofactors. A cofactor is any non-protein substance required for a protein to be catalytically active.

<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.
